by Dianne LatchawI have written poems on napkins at restaurants (ironically the one written at Perkins is not the one in which it was mentioned), on whatever scrap of paper I can find, and on the back of an envelope during the intermission at our local theater’s production of Le Mis. This book is a collection of poems on various topics—some serious, some funny, some whimsical, and some with a holiday theme. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
by William DickieThis book contains many poems on a number of varied subjects, but I could say the one true thread connecting all of them is the thread of love.

by William KofoedI do not know why most poets write poetry but I know why I do so. I write because a thought gets in my head and bounces around till I write it down. You could say that I don't try to write but that I am forced to write. Now I do try to write "good" poetry that people will enjoy reading, but I don't try to write poems for people to read. Most people find that they like some of my poems and hate others of them.

by Eric Christopher JacksonNovember 2013 | Publishers Weekly Cover Feature "As I began my journey into adulthood, I realized the persona of what I was led to believe a man should be was a standard I could not meet.
