About National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. The creation of a National Poetry Month was inspired by the success of Black History Month (February) and Women's History Month (March). In 1995, the Academy of American Poets assembled a group of literary organizations, poets, teachers, booksellers, publishers, and librarians to explore the importance of establishing a month dedicated to the celebration and cultivation of poetry and literacy.

The first National Poetry Month took place in April, 1995 and since then it has been celebrated annually.
