This April, we are fortunate to have U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith as the guest editor of Poem-a-Day, which she describes as “a series that shares the good news of poetry every single day,” reaching readers across the country in cities, small towns, and rural communities.
In fact, Poem-a-Day reaches more readers—in all fifty states and around the globe—with more new poems than any other poetry publication. But Poem-a-Day only exists because devoted readers like you make it possible.
This National Poetry Month, we are raising much-needed funds to sustain and grow this one-of-a-kind free series. Please, if you can, take a moment and help support Poem-a-Day.
The “good news of poetry” means many things. Whether you read Poem-a-Day for inspiration, to encounter new ideas or experiences, or to appreciate language and its ability to transport us, the daily practice of reading poems is life-enriching.
Thanks for reading, sharing, and supporting Poem-a-Day.
