Recently received a permissions request from The National Library Board (NLB) Singapore which is publishing “An Anthology of English Writing in Southeast Asia.” 'Twas for a poem by Lani Montreal published in PINOY POETICS. Of course I--as Meritage Press publisher--gave permission, and was heartened that PINOY POETICS gave a venue to Lani's poem ... which also reminds me yet again to remind you all: PINOY POETICS is not a "new book" -- but it is still the only publication of its type out there, and you all should definitely continue to assign it as a poetry / poetics text. And thanks-giving to you classroom teachers who've done so in the past and, hopefully, will continue to do so.
