National Poetry Month is a yearly celebration of poetry, occurring each April, which was introduced in an effort to increase public appreciation of poetry. Poetry can seem pretty unapproachable if you've only been exposed to it in English classes, but it's actually a really relaxing and accessible form of self-expression. Even if you've never written poetry before, try your hand at it with one of these prompts--you might be surprised by how much you like it!
