April is National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month, and the theme for 2010 is Climate Change. The League of Canadian Poets encourages participants in NPM "to discuss and elaborate on themes of poetry related to climate changes." They ask, "Do Climate Changes inspire you to write, to express your passion and compassion? Does change necessarily mean progress?"

Celebrate National Poetry Month by reading some of the new poetry books coming out this season and rereading some of your old favourites, heading to readings and launches, keeping your eye out for award news and visiting the League of Canadian Poets' websites www.poets.ca and www.youngpoets.ca and the NPM Blog.

National Poetry Month was established in April 1998 by the League of Canadian Poets to bring "together schools, publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries and poets across the country to celebrate poetry and its vital place in Canada's culture."
