Celebrating April Poetry Month 2015: Table of Contents #npm15 #wppoets


April Poetry Month is upon us!!!! Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1999, National Poetry Month is the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture.

We thought it would be fun to celebrate by posting poems by local Wisconsin writers every day! So bookmark this page and check back often!
