It's our favorite season! For those new readers who don't know about it, let's break it down: for 11 months of the year we bring you primo poetry news and a featured writer, we sprinkle in some sweet Poetry magazine related pieces, and a lil of this, lil of that. But in the glorious month of April, we take a break from the news to invite 20 poets working in a diverse range of poetries to occupy the blog for the month.
