For almost two decades, The Academy of American Poets has celebrated April as National Poetry Month (NPM) to increase public awareness about the importance of poetry and its essential place in American culture.
As a part of this initiative, in 2009 the City of San Antonio published its own local NPM calendar to provide information about poetry readings, workshops, spoken word and slam competitions, panel discussions, and more activities. The calendar supports the literary arts and serves as a validation of San Antonio’s rich literary culture. Join the effort to connect the poets and the public.
