Dear Poem-a-Day Subscriber,

 

As National Poetry Month 2015 comes to a close, I hope you might take a moment to support our work in the months ahead.

 

It’s only with your help that we are able to inspire the next generation of poetry readers and poets in April and year-round.

 

With your support, before the end of the year we will publish and promote more than 150 new poems by today’s talented poets in our Poem-a-Day series. We’ll expand our growing collection of lesson plans on Poets.org, working with teachers and partner organizations. And, from September 2015 to June 2016, we will send these lesson plans, great poems to teach, and other free resources to the 8,000+ teachers who have subscribed to our Educator Newsletter.

 

With your support, together, we will inspire new readers of poetry, and possibly even a future laureate!

 

Help us pass poetry on. Please celebrate National Poetry Month with a donation to the Academy of American Poets and its many valuable free programs, including Poem-a-Day.

 

                                          Sincerely,

Jennifer Benka,
Executive Director

 
 

P.S. In gratitude for a gift of $30 or more, we’ll send you an exclusive Gwendolyn Brooks poet’s notebook.

Buying Houses Involved With Murders and Crimes

 
 
 

In a recent study of female serial killers, it was found that most female killers work in traditionally feminine professions like nursing and teaching. These positions give killers easy access to vulnerable victims.
 
2. Women kill for resources.

While many male serial murders involve a desire for domination, control, and sexual violence, females are more likely to kill for power or money.
 
3. Male serial killers are more likely to be caught.

According to another study, female serial killers are able to avoid capture for at least twice as long as male serial killers.
 
4. Most female killers know their victims.

Most victims of male serial killers are strangers to their killer, while almost every victim of a female serial killer is a known friend, family member, or acquaintance.
 
5. Most women who are in prison for murder are there because they killed a husband, boyfriend, or child.

6. Poison is the method of choice for female serial killers.

7. Male serial killers still vastly outnumber female serial killers.

There were only 46 known female serial killers in the United States between 1800 and 2000.
 
8. The average profile of a female serial killer is disturbingly common.

She is a young, middle-class woman — usually a married Christian — and she works with vulnerable people in fields like nursing, teaching, and care-giving.
 
9. They are equally as likely to murder other women and children as they are to murder men.

In the U.S., at least 51 percent of documented female serial killers have killed another woman. More than 30 percent have murdered a child.
 
10. The average female serial killer murders for much longer than a man.

Researchers have found that female serial killers' careers last between 8 and 11 years, versus just 2 years for their male counterparts. This may have something to do with how rarely they're caught compared to male serial killers.
 
So maybe female serial killers are more common than we once thought. The next time you hear about someone's husband or child dying in an "accident," don't be so quick to rule out the wife or mother...they could be a killer lying in wait for you to let your guard down.

Dog Best Friends That Can't Be Separated
 
We absolutely love it when we see animal best friends hanging out together, and these adorable dog buddies are no different. We value dogs, as "man's best friend," for the relationships they form with us, but they're social animals that are perfectly capable of finding friends among their own kind as well! Dogs evolved from wolves, and both animals have structured, pack-based social lives.
