National Poetry Month

I just learned through Amanda Auchter's blog that one of the ways the American Academy of Poets celebrates National Poetry Month is by posting a daily poem on their site as well as emailing it to interested subscribers (even uninterested ones). These are recently published poems by, of course, Americans. To see the poems published so far and to subscribe yourself, see here.

Up here April is also our National Poetry Month. (Is that what makes it the cruellest month? Joking aside...) It would be great if our League of Canadian Poets could get it together to do the same thing... an obvious and simple and probably not too expensive way to raise poetry awareness. Will suggest it to the "powers that be"...
