April is National Poetry Month. To herald the end, The American Academy of Poets encourages everyone to participate in the 2nd annual national celebration of Poem In Your Pocket Day. Inspired by this celebration, I created the 1st Poem On Your Blog Day five years ago. I didn't celebrate the last two years, but this year, I'm back in the game. Of course, there's less than two days to go before Poem In Your Pocket Day, which is the same day as Poem On Your Blog Day: Thursday, April 30, 2009. You can still participate in either or both celebrations.
Suggested events here in New York City.
