Season 8 (July through December 2019) poets as well as Season 9 (January through June 2020) poets will be honored at a Celebration of Poetry during National Poetry Month in April 2020. Beginning in 2019, rather than having a celebration event for each season of Poetry Moves, Artstra has set a calendar of annual celebrations, each time honoring two seasons of poets.
