Celebrate National Poetry Month this April!

Mississippi’s own Poet Laureate, Beth Ann Fennelly, was selected as a Poet Laureate Fellow for the Academy of American Poets. She wants to hear from Mississippi students in grades five through twelve through the project Dear Poet.

Hear her read her poem “Poem Not to Be Read at Your Wedding”, and then share your response in the form of a letter.

Teachers and students can send responses to dearpoet@poets.org by April 30. Please include your full name, school, and state.
