Featured Babymaker & contributing Do512 Family writer, Ava Love Hanna, earned her masters degree in poetry. So, naturally she wanted to share some ways that you can celebrate Poetry Month on your own!
I’m a poet. I always have been. And even though my writing of late has moved towards essays and magazine articles (money), I will always be a poet.
I love to talk and will spend hours chatting away in person, but when I write I am minimalist, I want to conserve words, I want crystallized moments to explode off the page in just a few sentences. I love the power of poetry. I love its beauty and its truth. And on days when the world seems ugly and gray, I remember that human beings can write poetry and how amazing that it is, and I am filled with hope again.
Despite April being the cruelest month (T.S. Eliot, anyone?), it is also National Poetry Month, so I’ve made a poster of fun ways we can celebrate poetry and share its beauty with those around us.
A high resolution printable pdf of this poster is available here.
