Yes, April is National Poetry Month.
You want to do poetry a favor?
Buy a book of poetry by a living poet.
If you don't know any and need some suggestions, buy something by Jared Carter or Lola Haskins or Bruce Guernsey or Charles Fishman or Charles Swanson or me.
It's easy. Just click on one of the names above.
Or if you don't want one of those books take a look through my Writing the Polish Diaspora blog or Writing the Holocaust. I'm sure you'll find a poet you'll like.
