Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month (NPM) brings together lovers of poetry from around the country to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. This year, the Academy is offering today’s tech-savvy students a new way to experience memorable poetry. See the Poetry Flow link at the end  of this post.
