Paper Kite Press is due to release in November the much-anticipated poem, home: An Anthology of Ars Poetica, which grew out of a popular collaborative blog, Ars Poetica, that expanded as each featured poet recommended five poets to share ars poetica poems and so on. To create this book, the editors chose from 569 poems sent in by 251 poets. Well, November ain't here but it is PRE-ORDER time! GO HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION!

It looks interesting -- the contributors listed below include many favorites so I'm looking forward to seeing again how they write poems about poetry's multiplicitous arts:

Thanks to editors Jennifer Hill and Dan Waber for taking my poem "Athena" which previously appeared in The Light Sang...

Paper Kite Press is a press doing lovely work. I highly recommend another recent title: Magdeline & the Mermaids, by Elizabeth Kate Switaj.
