Hide Profile

The Academy of American poets was founded in 1934 by Mrs. Hugh Bullock to encourage, stimulate, and foster the production of American poetry by providing fellowships for poets, sponsoring national book awards for poets of all accomplishments, offering prizes in American universities and numerous other public programs, and bringing poetry into the daily lives of Americans. The Academy's series of readings, lectures, and dialogues, offered annually since 1963, has achieved a national reputation.
