About Poetry

Poetry is a staple in English classes, but many people are left with questions about understanding poems and writing them. With so much time being spent teaching and studying this form, we have provided resources for students and teachers to navigate this sometimes mysterious genre and to celebrate it in April during National Poetry Month. You will find articles on poetic techniques, poems hand selected to help students better grasp those techniques, and ways to celebrate poetry during National Poetry Month.

Poetry has been around a long time and while the "Death of Poetry" is a phrase that is too common. We believe that poetry is filling the same needs that people have used poetry to fill for thousands of years. The poet is someone unafraid of facing the depth of their emotions and is willing to put them on paper for the public to view. Not everyone knows how to be so brave, but everyone can learn to do so. We all can learn to write poetry and become a better person through it. Are you looking to meet your inner self and your inner poet? We hope we can help you find the poet in you!
