The Visible Poetry Project is a non-profit National Poetry Month initiative bringing together a collective of thirty poets and thirty filmmakers to create videos that present poems as short films. Drawing from works created by renowned and emerging poets alike, the Visible Poetry Project strives to make poetry accessible, exploring how we can recreate and experience poems through the medium of film. The Visible Poetry Project releases visual poems daily throughout National Poetry Month (April) on their website.
