April is Poetry Month

npm2013_logoApril is Poetry Month, a month-long celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets in 1996.

As a writer of literary fiction, I am a poetry fan, although I am far from knowledgeable. Still, for inspiration I will often open a book of poems and read the work aloud, hoping to stimulate my creativity.

In honor of poetry month, most days I will grab a book of poetry off the shelf and shine the spotligh

t on it here. I’ve got an eclectic collection, many by friends and acquaintances, so you may discover someone new in the process.

And, by the way, our local writers organization, SWAG Writers, is also celebrating poetry month with a poetry reading on Thursday, April 4.april2013poetry
