Happy National Poetry Month!

The team at the Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest looks forward to April each year—not just because it means the long Minnesota winter might be coming to an end. April is National Poetry Month! While we are not able to host a community event this year, there are still a lot of ways to celebrate without leaving your home. We invite you to visit poets.org/national-poetry-month for great ideas provided by the Academy of American Poets.

The artwork for the National Poetry Month poster (right) is by Samantha Aikman. The line is excerpted from the poem "Remember" by Joy Harjo, from She Had Some Horses (W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., 1983).

The Maria W. Faust Sonnet Contest is a project of the River Arts Alliance.
