Today, $50 = $100 when you make a gift to sustain Poem-a-Day

Dear Reader,

When you read Poem-a-Day, you are sharing in a practice that Naomi Shihab Nye calls, “Openhearted, profoundly encouraging to human voices, and delightfully inspiring.”

Truly, reading poems is life-enriching. And I hope, in this season of giving, as a devoted member of the Poem-a-Day community, you will help support the series in the year ahead.

If you give today, your gift will be doubled, thanks to a generous pledge from our friends at ABRAMS Books, so long as we can make our goal of raising $10,000!

There’s no other poetry series publishing 260 new poems annually, shared free-of-charge with a worldwide readership. And, as you know, Poem-a-Day also includes an insightful statement and audio recording of the poet, as well as other recommended reading.

As a nonprofit organization, we can’t publish and distribute Poem-a-Day without your help—from production costs to paying the Guest Editors and featured poets. We rely on readers like you.

Please take a moment now to support Poem-a-Day in the year ahead with a special gift to help secure our $10,000 match!

With heartfelt thanks,


Tess O’Dwyer
Board Chair
Academy of American Poets
P.S. In addition to helping us reach the $10,000 goal needed to unlock our matching grant from ABRAMS Books, your gift of $50 today will ensure you receive our beautiful new 2023 Poem-a-Day Wall Calendar, featuring lines of poetry from Ada Limón, Claudia Rankine, Diane Seuss, and all the series editors for the year ahead. Get yours today!
