This April you can celebrate National Poetry Month through the Writers in the Schools (WITS) email campaign, A Poem a Day.

If you sign up, WITS will email  a child’s poem to you each weekday during the month of April. All poems featured in A Poem a Day are written and read aloud by WITS students in grades K-12. Sign up today and then share A Poem a Day with all your friends who appreciate the written word.

If you already subscribe to The WITS Blog, you know how inspirational it is to open your email or RSS feed each morning and be surprised by the words of children as young as 5 years. If you want to subscribe now, click here and click SUBSCRIBE.

  • Share them on FaceBook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
  • Write your own poem a day.
