The question I’m asked most when explaining that I’m pursuing my MFA in Poetry is a resounding, “why?” Followed by, “what will you do with that?” Followed by, “who is your favorite poet?” I have a lot of favorite poets because the field is full of supremely talented writers. These are my favorite collections I read this past year.
- Jericho Brown The New Testament 2. D.A. Powell Repast: Tea, Lunch, and Cocktails 3. Sandra Lim The Wilderness 4. CA Conrad The Book of Frank 5. Christian Hawkey Vetrakl 6. Hannah Sanghee Park The Same Different 7. Robin Coste Lewis Voyage of the Sable Venus 8. Saeed Jones Prelude to Bruise 9. The Everyman’s Library Pocket Poets: Conversation Pieces.
