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.

Thanks to teacher Ann Radebaugh for sharing this great photo of the National Poetry Month 2014 “Poetree” at Jasper High School in Plano, Texas. Students posted original and published poems to make the leaves.
