Celebrate National Poetry Month

Dear Reader,

In celebration of National Poetry Month, we’re offering a free download of the April 2016 issue of Poetry magazine. It’s available in our iTunes app or as a PDF for your other devices.

The April 2016 issue features a portfolio of poets associated with Split This Rock, a national organization that cultivates, teaches, and celebrates poetry. The issue also includes remarks from members of the Academy of American Poets—the organization that founded National Poetry Month twenty years ago this month—describing what poetry means today; the occasional feature “The View from Here;” and much more, including Alice Lyons on Hollis Frampton’s film Gloria! as a lyric poem. Listen to this month’s Poetry magazine podcast, hosted by the editors, and watch videos of our “The View from Here” contributors talking about how they encounter poetry in their daily lives.

There is nothing like seeing the latest issue of Poetry in your mailbox or at your local bookstore, but we hope you’ll love seeing the magazine in an accessible digital format, too; it not only allows Poetry to be available wherever you go, but also offers new ways of discovering and sharing the poems you love.

Poetry subscribers can access digital issues in app at any time, as part of our print/digital bundle with each subscription.

Happy reading!

The Editors
