This National Poetry Month on All Lit Up we bring you Poetry Express, a month-long series dedicated to poetry as a mode of travel—anywhere, anytime. In a year of isolation, poetry, more than ever, is connection, expression, and reflection. Poetry takes us places, both undiscovered and revisited.
Join us here on the blog throughout the month for our feature poets—including Q&As and poems for every kind of mood—and get 15% off any of our featured collections until April 30th.
Scroll on for our line-up of poets and take a mini quiz to get matched with a poetry book!
During the month of April, you can buy any of our featured Poetry Express books for 15% off + free shipping in Canada. Just use promo code NPMexpress at checkout. Or find them at your
local independent bookstore.
Take our mini quiz to get matched with a book and discover even more poetry beyond our featured list!
