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.

Aimee Nezhukumatathil here—I’ll be curating Friday the 13th’s tumblr posts for the Academy of American Poetry all day. Check back for Lana del Rey’s white crocs (and I don’t mean footwear!), how to apply the PERFECT eyeliner, amazing (but obscure, at least, to the western hemisphere) Indian poets, where to find the most delish macaron, and— I think a few of my poetry-bandit friends might pop up to scribble on your hearts. Welcome! And be sure to pop back all the way until midnite!
