Hi Paul,

I am the Publicity & Outreach Coordinator for the Academy of American Poets. I’m writing with the hope that you will help us spread the word about an educational project that the Academy has launched for National Poetry Month 2014 called Poet-to-Poet. 
 
Poet-to-Poet is a multimedia project that invites young people to write poems in response to those shared by award-winning contemporary poets who serve on the Academy’s honorary Board of Chancellors. Participants are encouraged to submit their response poems to the Academy for possible publication on Poets.org, which will be relaunching in April with a whole new look. 
For educators hoping to bring Poet-to-Poet into the classroom, the Academy has worked with a curriculum specialist to create two Common Core aligned lesson plans to accompany the project.
 
I have attached a press release with more information, and the project can be found here: poets.org/poet2poet.
Please be in touch if you need anything further, and please let me know if you’re able to help us get the word out. We’d love to have as many young people as possible submit their poems for possible publication!
Cheers,
Stacy
P.S. Poem in Your Pocket Day will be held on April 24 throughout the United States. Here’s more info: poets.org/pocket.
