Female Poets You Should Know…


So with the combination of March being Women’s History Month AND National Reading Month today we thought we’d highlight some female poets. It was hard trying to narrow down a list because there was no chance we could be as inclusive as we wanted to be. That being said, below you’ll find 7 poets highlighted along with links to books that will expose you to more women you should know 🙂
