Poetry’s editorial staff posts new content that complements the current issue and delves into the magazine’s history. Each month the editors invite a guest blogger to write a single post highlighting poetry or prose from the issue. In the “Reading List” series, Poetry contributors share a few texts that recently held their interest. The “Spotify Playlist” offers a soundtrack to accompany the current issue.
