“Poems” by Christopher Michel @ Flickr.com

Throughout the country, April is designated as National Poetry Month. This year marks the celebration’s 20th anniversary! Here are some ways that you can enjoy and be inspired through the art of the word:

  • South Jersey Poets Collective (Facebook link): group of local poets dedicated to maintaining a community of artists interested in sharing their writing. They even offer free monthly meetings at Dante Hall in Atlantic City.
  • Favorite Poem Project: An initiative aimed to document America’s favorite poems — giving a collective voice to the poem-lover in all of us.
  • Poems Are For Everybody: An article on how to incorporate poetry into your everyday life. “Poems happen every day and in the everyday. Poems are made of life….Poems are for everybody.”

And don’t forget your friendly college library! Remember, we are here to help.
