About the Book

An anthology of a different sort, this volume presents a representative sample of contemporary American poetry in 2021, with a road map of its origins. Bringing a diversity of styles and sensibilities, 62 poets from across the United States—some well known, some up-and-coming—illuminate their craft. Each contributes one poem, accompanied by an essay discussing their creative process and how the verse came to fruition.
