The Rumpus National Poetry Month Project


Every year, The Rumpus celebrates National Poetry Month by running new poems from poets we admire. We feature a different poet each day, and aim to illustrate the variety in voices and styles of poetry being written today. New poems will appear weekday afternoons at 3 p.m. PT, and weekends at noon PT. We’ll post links to them on our Facebook pages and Twitter feeds (@The_Rumpus and @RumpusPoetry). We hope you’ll check back each day for new poems.

We’ll kick off the month tomorrow with two poems from Lee-Ann Roripaugh. See you then!

Brian Spears's first collection of poetry, A Witness in Exile, is now available through Louisiana Literature Press, and at his personal website. He is Senior Poetry Editor at The Rumpus. More from this author →
