Over at FSG we just re-launched our annual poetry blog for National Poetry Month: The Best Words in Their Best Order. If that sounds odd, well, it is. It’s not a blog we run all the time, just for the month of April each year. (There’s also a poem-a-day email. More on that later.)
We have a lot of cool stuff planned this year – more posts by publisher Jonathan Galassi, guest writing and poetry from Graywolf Press, lots of multimedia – but I wanted to create a kind of roundup of other poetry projects on the internets. Because you can never have too much poetry, right? I suppose you could suffer from Stendhal Syndrome, but let’s not focus on that.
- Some great poem-a-day emails you should subscribe to: Academy of American Poets, FSG, Knopf
- PoetrySpeaks, Dominique Raccah’s site with lots of great audio to discover
- Poems Out Loud, run by the good folks at W.W Norton
- My favorite poet, Frederick Seidel, has recorded a wealth of full-throated readings of his work, which can be found here.
I know I’m forgetting some others. Feel free to add your favorites in the comments.
