April is Poetry Month!

In 1996, the Academy of American Poets declared April to beNational Poetry Month. Consequently, every year schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets band together to celebrate this art form and its role in our culture. Thousands of organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.

This year, KUT is participating by sharing poems written by students in the Blank Page creative writing program at Kealing Middle School in Austin I.S.D. You can not only experience the poems online but also hear them read on KUT 90.5 FM throughout the month of April.
