Is There a Poet Inside You Crying to be Heard?

Is there a poet inside you crying to be heard? Now is the perfect time to pick up a pen and write down those verses. It is National Poetry Month!

National Poetry Month has been celebrated throughout the month of April since 1996. It is a great opportunity to read some poetry if you never have, share your favorite poems with others or try writing your own!

Poetry is a wonderful and powerful form of expression and New Moon Girls encourages every girl to try her hand at writing poetry! From acrostic poems to haikus, rhyming and non-rhyming, many New Moon Girls choose to express themselves through poetry.

Check out this acrostic poem by Kate, 11, California, or Mary, 14, Oregon’s creative ABC poem! Read Sara, 12, California’s poem about poetry and Jordan, 11, Florida’s poem about her name.

What better way to celebrate National Poetry Month than to write and share your own poetry? Whether you’ve been writing poetry forever or just trying it out for the first time, submit your verses here!

There are so many ways you can celebrate National Poetry Month. Learn some great writing tips from last week’s Writing Chat, or try some of these fun activities for National Poetry Month. Also, don’t forget to celebrate Poem in your Pocket Day Thursday, April 26th! Jot down your favorite verses and carry them in your pocket to share with friends and family all day long!
