National Poetry Month in Cleveland

Underground poet d.a. levy found inspiration in the streets of 1960s Cleveland. Now it's your chance. As National Poetry Month arrives, we sought out some of the poetry events going on around town for our list below. Also, check out where a trio of Cleveland poets find their inspiration (and where you can see them this month), and read senior editor Erick Trickey's profile of d.a. levy from our November 2007 issue.
