Happy National Poetry Month!

Thanks for stopping by FSG's National Poetry Month blog!

I have a ton of exciting poetry-in-action in store for us this month--downloadable readings, posters, book giveaways, and a very big event at The Strand Bookstore in New York City (more on this later). And as this blog is only going to be around through April 30th, I think now would be an excellent time to set your bookmarks and/or RSS feeds so you don't miss a minute of it.

This week will be an exciting one, with readings by Nobel Prize winners Seamus Heaney and Derek Walcott (reading--in a nice meta moment--the work of fellow Nobel Prize winner Joseph Brodsky) all available for FREE download.

And we're kicking things off later today with the promised--and very unusual--ringtone. Stay tuned!
