Harriet Has Arrived

The new blog chronicles the world of poetry, constantly.

by The Editors
We’ve revamped our Journals section. Gone are the weekly diaries by different writers (though they’re archived right here). In their place, we’ve created a true blog, where multiple writers post on all things poetry, all the time.

This blog is called Harriet.

Take a look at a few entries, and then add Harriet to your bookmarks.
