April is National Poetry Month, the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture. Get in the mood by checking out our HUGE list of publishers of books, chapbooks and anthologies of poetry. If you are a poet, why not consider submitting your verse to one or more of the publishers on the list, or to a few poetry contests?

We hope you can celebrate the month by taking in a Poetry event near you, or by simply taking the time to discover a poet new to you.
