Every month is poetry month for me but today officially marks the 1st day of National Poetry Month in both Canada and the US.
National Poetry Month was started in 1996 by The Academy of American Poets as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry in the United States every April.
Since 1999, National Poetry Month in Canada has also been celebrated every April and is sponsored by The League of Canadian Poets.
My suggestion to you, dear reader, is to start off your Poetry Month by ordering a copy of my new chapbook.
Now that I've got that little bit of self-promotion out of the way, here are a few poetry-related links for your enjoyment:
