Calling all bards, poets and writers – National Poetry Month has arrived.
April is the month to sharpen the pencil, pull out the paper and ramp up the literary creativity.
In 1996, the Academy of American Poets established National Poetry Month as a month-long, national celebration of poetry.
The concept was to increase the attention paid-by individuals and the media to the art of poetry, to living poets, to Americans’ poetic heritage, and to poetry books and magazines.
In the end, the hope is to achieve an increase in the visibility, presence and accessibility of poetry in culture.
National Poetry Month has been successful beyond all anticipation and has grown over the years into the largest literary celebration in the world.
Locally, Mesa Public Library is recognizing National Poetry Month with a reading by the Nuclear Poets.
The work will address the Cerro Grande fire. Additionally, the reading will be a part of the opening reception for the newest art exhibit at the library, “Touched by Fire: Hands that Help, Hands that Create.”
