April is National Poetry Month, and since its inception in 1996, has become the largest literary celebration in the world. Schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrate through a diverse range of activities, which include but are not limited to poem-a-day, taking a poetry class, and chalking poem murals. Here are 30 ways you can celebrate poetry. Here at ASIJ we celebrated national poetry month through a collaborative poetry reading. This past Wednesday during activity period, 16 students read poems that had moved and inspired them or they had written themselves.
