National Poetry Month

entering the wild garden poem

National Poetry Month (NPM) takes place every year in the month of April.  It's a time to celebrate poets, poetry, and the importance they have in our community.  Poetry offers us wisdom, uplifting ideas, and language that helps us reflect on our lives.  It also helps us to slow down and center ourselves mentally, emotionally, and spiritually in life.

Below are new broadsides put together specifically for NPM.  See more Poet Laureate news and the full text of each poem here!
