The National Poetry Month Project


This is the third year that The Rumpus has celebrated National Poetry Month by running a new, previously-unpublished poem every day for the month. Here’s a link to last year’s collection. We’ve solicited poems from a wide range of poets again, including new work from some of the poets who were covered in our Rumpus Poetry Book Club. We’ll update this list daily with links to the new poems, and you can also get your daily dose of Rumpus Original Poetry by following us on Twitter or liking us on Facebook.
