Hey CUZZINs, National Poetry Month is coming up and we can wait to celebrate with you at the Historic Belafonte TACOLCY Center in Liberty City.

What is National Poetry Month?
National Poetry Month is the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of poets and lovers of the literary arts marking poetry’s important place in our culture and our lives every April.

Who started it?
Inspired by the successful celebrations of Black History Month (February) and Women's History Month (March), the Academy of American Poets established National Poetry Month in 1996. Along the way the organization enlisted a variety of government agencies and officials, educational leaders, publishers, sponsors, poets, and arts organizations to help. National Poetry Month is a registered trademark of the Academy of American Poets.

The goals of National Poetry Month are to:

  • highlight the extraordinary legacy and ongoing achievement of American poets
  • encourage the reading of poems
  • assist teachers in bringing poetry into their classrooms
  • increase the attention paid to poetry by national and local media
  • encourage increased publication and distribution of poetry books, and
  • encourage support for poets and poetry.
