We are celebrating National Poetry Month during the month of April. In 1996, the Academy of American Poets established this month long national celebration of poetry. According to Poets.org, The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern. To learn more about the Academy of American Poets, visit their website at http://www.poets.org/.
I would also like to share an article listing 12 Ways to Write a Poem, that I found on Oprah.com. This article gives some simple tips if you want to pursue poetry composition. I also urge you to research and learn about the various types of poetry that make up this wonderful craft.
