April is National Poetry Month

Poetry Magazine is celebrating 100 years of publishing  read about it’s humble beginnings .

Poetry (founded as, Poetry: A Magazine of Verse), published in Chicago, Illinois since 1912, is one of the leading monthly poetry journals in the English-speaking world. Published by the Poetry Foundation and currently edited by Christian Wiman, the magazine has a circulation of 30,000 and prints 300 poems per year[1] out of approximately 100,000 submissions.[2] It is sometimes referred to as Poetry–Chicago.
Poetry has been financed since 2003 with a $200 million grant from Ruth Lilly.

Founded in Chicago by Harriet Monroe in 1912, Poetry magazine began with the “Open Door”:

May the great poet we are looking for never find it shut, or half-shut, against his ample genius! To this end the editors hope to keep free of entangling alliances with any single class or school. They desire to print the best English verse which is being written today, regardless of where, by whom, or under what theory of art it is written.

In its first year Poetry published William Carlos Williams and William Butler Yeats; Joyce Kilmer’s “Trees” and Ezra Pound’s “In a Station of the Metro”; and introduced Rabindranath Tagore to the English-speaking world just before he was awarded the Nobel Prize.Founded in Chicago by Harriet Monroe in 1912, Poetry magazine began with the “Open Door”:

A period tells you that is that. With a semicolon you get a pleasant little feeling of expectancy ; there is more to come; read on; it will get clearer.
