Supporting New Poetry Releases During Quarantine

Poetry rarely sees high press runs and royalty checks. And yet its writing is essential art that speaks to the human condition and its current moment in a brief, potent, insightful, nuanced, and imaginative way like no other kind of writing. Many poets rely on readings and connecting with their communities to help launch a new collection and find its readership. I dedicate this space to new poetry releases finding different means of entrance into the world during the extended quarantine of coronavirus.
