Best American Poetry Launch, 9/20
For those who may not have seen it elsewhere, here's a link to the official announcement of the launch event for Best American Poetry 2018, guest edited by Dana Gioia, so that quite a lot of formal poets--including Sphere members--are in it.

If you're in the NYC area then, there are lots of us who'd love to see you there.

Great, Maryann. I'm glad that you will be there, too. Susan de Sola, will you be there?

I couldn't find a list of the line-up.

It will be a weird reading--lots of poets reading one poem, each.

Maryann Corbett 08-26-2018 12:02 PM

I wish I could find a line-up, Aaron, but I'm not sure a list exists. On Facebook at least, Ernest Hilbert, Nemo Hill, and Nausheen Eusuf have said they'll be there (if I find I've missed anyone, I'll edit back).

To see who's in the book, at any rate, one can peek at the back cover image on Amazon.

I missed this! Congratulations to all!

The back cover also notes A Poochigian and A Stallings. Kudos!

I just noticed that my name is right next to Jonathan Galassi. Ha! It'll be the only time I rub shoulders with someone of his stature. ;) The whole thing is still a little unreal.

R. Nemo Hill 08-30-2018 04:02 PM
