The poems featured in our Poem-a-Day series are written by poets who have at least one book published or forthcoming. While we don't accept submissions, we encourage poets with forthcoming books to send us a galley at the above mailing address, and we will consider previously unpublished poems for publication.



Website features full-length biographies of poets who have published three or more books and have received recognition for their poetry. We also include short biographies of poets whose poems have appeared in Poem-a-Day. To be considered for a biography and/or to submit information to update an existing biography, click the Poet Biographies link.
