The Academy of American Poets is for people who love poetry. Our membership is nearly 9,000 strong and growing, and our programs reach over 20 million people every year. Our programs include Poets.org, the Poets Forum, Poem in Your Pocket Day, National Poetry Month, American Poet magazine, the Poem-A-Day email series, the Poetry Audio Archive, educational initiatives, readings and events, awards and prizes, and so much more. We’ve been doing this since 1934, and we still think it's fun.

Moon alert! The full moon we just had—you can still see it about quarter phased now—is called the Pascal moon, the moon that signals Easter. Pascal is the name of my oldest son. It’s also my favorite moon of the year—the time that carpet phlox and tulips bloom. May’s moon is called the Flower Moon or the Milk Moon. Swoon!
