Happy Poetry Month!

It is April – Happy Poetry Month!

Join me. 

Celebrate a few great poets starting with America’s newest sweetheart, Amanda Gorman who wowed us at the Biden-Harris inauguration, January 20, 2021.

Since being introduced worldwide, Ms. Gorman has become the #1 Bestselling author for her poem, “The Hill We Climb.”

Available everywhere books are sold; consider if you will purchase your book from a local community bookstore.

Other favorite poets to consider as we celebrate muse-makers might include:

  • Maya Angelou (a national favorite)
  • Nikki Giovanni
  • Mary Oliver
  • Tracy K. Smith
  • Walt Whitman
  • Emily Dickinson
  • Sylvia Plath

And a few newcomers:

Jericho Brown, Donte Collins 

and Nicole Sealey.

Introduced to letter-writing at a very early age, I continue to be encourage by everything “write”. I especially love poetry, the ways words line up in perfect order inspire and hope you will celebrate a muse maker this month and everyday. 

It is April – happy poetry month!
