Poetry & the Creative Mind

April is coming, and National Poetry Month in the U.S.A will begin as it has for the past six years, with a gala benefit called "Poetry & the Creative Mind" on April first.  This year at Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center there will be readings from Jorie Graham, Wynton Marsalis, Zadie Smith, Mark Strand, and others.  

The Academy of American Poets is also sponsering a photo contest with photos of verse to be posted to the Flickr group "Free Verse" (created March 13, 2009).
