Free Poetry Poster for Teachers, Bookstores and Libraries

More than 100,000 free posters will be distributed to schools, libraries, and bookstores coast to coast to help celebrate National Poetry Month 2018. All they have to do is fill out this simple form here.

The 2018 National Poetry Month poster, designed by AIGA Medal and National Design Award-winning designer Paula Scher, celebrates typography and is suggestive of concrete poetry and Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass.

National Poetry Month, which takes place each April, is a celebration of poetry introduced in 1996 and organized by the Academy of American Poets as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry in the United States.

The Academy of American Poets’ website Poets.org serves as a hub for information about local poetry events during the month. The organization also provides free educational resources to teachers for classroom celebrations and activities, and commissions an annual festival poster like this one.
