April is Poetry Month

This April marks the twentieth anniversary of National Poetry Month. Northwestern University Press celebrates the lyric imagination by publishing many acclaimed poets, including National Book Award winners, MacArthur Fellows and PEN finalists. Northwestern University Press also sponsors the Cave Canem Northwestern University Press Poetry Prize, a second-book award for Black poets of African descent, offered every other year. Join us as we feature poets and poetry all month long on our website and social media accounts in celebration of National Poetry Month!
