National Poetry Month is a time to come together and celebrate the great literary talent found in San Antonio, and to appreciate poetry as an art form. Poetry readings, workshops, spoken word and slam competitions are just some of the events and activites that will take place this April during National Poetry Month 2020.
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. The City of San Antonio established a NPM calendar of events in 2009. Make plans this year to participate in NPM in April and join the effort to connect the poets and the public.
The 2020 events calendar is currently in development. Please check back for details. Here is a look at the events that took place during the 2019 National Poetry Month in San Antonio (PDF - English | Español)
