an online anthology of Contemporary American Poetry. We started in 2006 as a small email list to friends, family, and
colleagues that brought verse to people who were lovers and students of poetry and to those whose knowledge of poetry started
and ended at The Divine Comedy.
Slowly but surely, PoemoftheWeek.org has grown in its number of recipients but has also matured with the incorporation
of audio and video-recordings of our authors reading their work, original interviews regarding the poems featured (rather
than regarding their entire school of thought on poetry), previously-published interviews, original and previously-published
reviews of their collections, "mini-reviews" of the featured poems themselves by our Contributing-Editor, first
drafts of the featured poems (when we have them!), and essays on poetics.
If you wish to receive PoemoftheWeek.org each
week in your email, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with your email address in the body of the email and please let us know how you made it to the site.
Please feel free to tell your friends and family about PoemoftheWeek.org and like us on Facebook! Our numbers are growing daily.
