2016 Poetry Campaign

white blank picture in the roomWell, my 2015 poetry campaign hit an unexpected snag when I moved in April and didn’t get to unpack my books for months.

Trying it again next year, and you’re welcome to join me. Here’s what I’ll be reading:

January: Mouthful of Forevers by Clementine Von Radics
February: It Becomes You by Dobby Gibson
March: Siphon, Harbor by Brooklyn Copeland
April: Aimless Love by Billy Collins
May: Incarnadine by Mary Szybist
June: My Bright Abyss by Christian Wiman, pages 1-60*
July:  My Bright Abyss by Christian Wiman, pages 61-120
August: My Bright Abyss by Christian Wiman, pages 121-end
September: Halflife by Meghan O’Rourke
October: Best Thought, Worst Thought by Don Paterson
November: The Poem She Didn’t Write and Other Poems by Olena Kalytiak Davis
December: The Madness Vase by Andrea Gibson

Maybe you want to read more poetry but you’re not sure where to start. Why not start with me?

* Everyone I’ve talked to who has read this says to give myself plenty of time to chew on this book.
