Description

Launched in 1996, American Poets magazine is published in April and October each year exclusively for the members of the Academy of American Poets. The features in the publication are written by some of today's most acclaimed and influential poets.

To celebrate the Fall/Winter issue, three of contemporary poetry's biggest writers will read from their work: Catherine Barnett, Shane McCrae, and Craig Morgan Teicher.

His work has also been featured in The Best American Poetry 2010, edited by Amy Gerstler, and his honors include a Whiting Writers’ Award and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Founded in 1934 in New York City, the Academy of American Poets is the largest membership-based nonprofit organization advocating for American poets and poetry. Its mission is to support American poets at all stages of their careers and to foster the appreciation of contemporary poetry. Each year, the charitable organization connects millions of readers to poets’ work with its many programs and publications, which, in addition to Poets.org, include Poem-a-Day, National Poetry Month (April), American Poets biannual literary journal for members, the American Poets Prizes, Poetry & the Creative Mind, a Fall Conversation Series, and an Education Program that provides free resources, such as lesson plans and Teach This Poem, and the Dear Poet project for K-12 teachers and students. In addition, the organization coordinates the Poetry Coalition, an alliance of more than 20 poetry organizations across the United States.
