Free 2023 National Poetry Month Poster

Note: this freebie is aimed at teachers, librarians, and students

I don't quite “get” the free National Poetry Month poster you see above. Then again I don't get much poetry beyond the roses are red variety and even those are known to throw me for a loop. Sometimes they're pink or white!

That said, I'm excited for this free poetry poster mainly for the alliteration as opposed to being a poetry fan. I'm not even sure I could name a single poet. Robbie Freeze? Amelia Ricketson? I know Edward Ellen Pope is a famous one. Oh yeah, Salt Shizman!

This is an annual freebie offer that ships out in May each year. The 2023 poster was designed by Marc Brown, creator of the popular Arthur book and PBS television series. The artwork incorporates an excerpted line from the poem โ€œCarryingโ€ by U.S. Poet Laureate Ada Limรณn.
