New Poetry Blog

I’m happy to announce the launch of a new poetry blog I’ll be editing, Underfoot Poetry.

It will include original, unpublished work from poets around the world, as well as a series I call Forerunners, featuring influential poetry from the past.

The first installments of both are up right now: six new poems from the British poet Daniel Paul Marshall, and a few samples of Mesopotamian and Egyptian poetry. About five thousand years separate these poems, and the fact that they are quite strangely appearing side-by-side bodes well for Underfoot Poetry. I hope you’ll agree.

For those interested in submitting, email me at underfootpoetry@outlook.com, and read the guidelines here.

For those interested in following, please do so like any WordPress blog; you can also receive updates via Twitter, @underfootpoetry

  3. I will be eagerly following!
    I love poetry and its ability to bestow little ephanies that connect us all. I think it’s the hardest to write well, as every word must be crystalline and perfect.
    I posted one this weekend that I wrote in memory of my mother. I hope you find the time to read it.
