« Contemporary Canadian Poetry by Eduardo C. Corral | Main | Poets & Writers Abandons Annual MFA Rankings as Bad for Applicants, Apologizes [by Stacey Harwood] »

March 31, 2014



ok for some reason this made me start to panic...but then I glanced at the calendar...phew...

COURSE not "coarse" of a season. And since when was poetry about "...representing elite colleges, corporations, and television networks" ???

Wow,it is April 1st! Good try! RuthB

Now it's April 2, I can venture out again; this one would NEVER have caught me, but I admit to seeing the Poets & Writers one previous to this, and thinking, Well, hey, finally they're getting some sense, only to remember that ... April is the foolest month!

You lost me at James Franco.

It didn't happen because of last-minute cancellation.

I want to see Robert Pinsky in the Instant Haiku round.

For a minute you fooled me.... :-) Nice one!

Bill and Hilary Clinton judging poetry?! 😂 Fortunately, it's April 1st...
