National Poetry Month 2016 Poster

National Poetry Month Poster

This April marks the 20th anniversary of National Poetry Month, which was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996.

Each year, the Academy of American Poets partners with award-winning designer Chip Kidd to commission a poster in celebration of National Poetry Month. This year’s poster was designed by Debbie Millman and features lines of poetry by some of our greatest poets.

“Poetry is a necessity of life. It is a function of poetry to locate those zones inside us that would be free, and declare them so.”
—C. D. Wright, Academy of American Poets Chancellor (2013–2016)

Happy National Poetry Month
