It is Friday poetry day and I was delighted with the coincidence of the following announcement.

The finalists of the National Academy of Poets 2020 National Poetry Month have been announced. Students, grades 9-12 made submissions and the judges somehow managed to sand these down to ten. Their next bit of work is to select ONE for the 2020 poster. The judges face a worthy task.

The winning artwork will become a poster sent to 100,000 libraries, schools, bookstores, and community centers nationwide and also made available by download on

View the ten here (with student statements) and thank all of the entrants for their contributions.

Be impressed.
