Sinclair, You Make No Sense

"Yeah, nothing says, 'We value independent media,' like dozens of reporters forced to repeat the same message over and over again like members of a brainwashed cult."

National Poetry Month

I, too, dislike it.
Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt for it, one discovers in
it, after all, a place for the genuine.

— Marianne Moore

The 2018 National Poetry Month poster, designed by AIGA Medal and National Design Award-winning designer Paula Scher, celebrates typography and is suggestive of concrete poetry and Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass."
