What will your poem be?

New York City is hosting the annual Poem in Your Pocket Day celebration on Thursday, April 30, 2015 in honor of National Poetry Month. To join in the excitement, write your own poem or borrow one from your favorite poet; just make sure to carry a poem in your pocket to share with your friends, family, classmates, and colleagues.

All month long, organizations will present poetry-inspired events throughout the five boroughs. Explore this site for more information on events, volunteer opportunities, and other special opportunities. You can also enter the #PoetweetNYC contest! Tweet a poem using #PoetweetNYC from April 6 - 13, 2015.
