About this blogOne of America's most revered poets, Adrienne Rich, said, "The moment of change is the only poem." Because the world is always changing, poetry is everywhere, and everything can be versified.
Here, I'll discuss and review contemporary books of poetry, with a focus on writers, publications and organizations based in York County, Pa., and the surrounding region. I'll promote area writers by offering prompts and contests, because I want to foster a spirit of community centered around poets and readers of poetry. This is a place to demystify the art of poetry, to appreciate its economy of language, its precision of image and sound.
Please share suggestions for blog content by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you! Let's versify PA and support those who are doing the same.
