April 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of National Poetry Month. Started in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world. Each year schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers and poets take time in April to celebrate how poetry has shaped our world and cultures.
Let’s begin the celebration with some of these great Gale resources.
