20 poets, 10 poems, 25 years of National Poetry Month
The Academy of American Poets was pleased to assist in curating this special celebration for National Poetry Month, an occasion our organization launched 25 years ago to recognize the important contributions poets make to culture, and to envisioning a more just country. It is in poetry that we encounter the insights and experiences of others and are called to compassion.
—Jennifer Benka,
President and Executive Director, Academy of American Poets
