2011: Poetry Collections to Come

Here’s the eagerly anticipated look (in sort of a haphazard modified ABC order) at what is ahead for 2011.  Of course, I don’t know all  poetry books that are forthcoming, but here is great start for what is in store for poetry lovers:

  1. The Glass Crib by Amanda Auchter
  2. The Northerners by Seth Abramson
  3. The Scientific Method by Mary Alexandra Agner
  4. I Stand Here Shredding Papers by Kristin Berkey-Abbott
  5. Saint Monica by Mary Biddinger
  6. Having a Little Talk with Capital P Poetry by Jim Daniels
  7. Sanderlings by Geri Doran
  8. She Returns to the Floating World by Jeannine Hall Gailey
  9. Lucky Fish by Aimee Nezhukumatathil
  10. Poetry in America by Julia Spicher Kasdorf
  11. The Book of Men by Dorianne Laux
  12. Hurricane Party by Alison Pelegrin
  13. The Little Office of Immaculate Conception by Martha Silano
  14. Wait by Alison Stine
  15. Killing the Jackal by Erica Wright
  16. Torn by C. Dale Young

*I have to put a disclaimer note for Kasdorf’s collection and Pelegrin’s collection.  I know that both books are coming out soon, but I am not sure when — I’m hoping it’s 2011!

**I just found out by looking at Kitsune’s website that poet Helen Ruggieri will be publishing a book this year, but I don’t know the title.  Helen is a “neighbor” of mine — she lives only about an hour away! (That’s close in rural PA)


  1. Great stuff coming! Happy New Year, Karen!

  2. Thanks for the shout-out, Karen!
    Also, Helen’s book, like mine, has a Japanes theme, I believe. I’ve never met her but maybe we’ll be a chance to meet and read together!

  3. Karen Said:

    Yes, Marie — Looks like a great year coming!

    Jeannine — I’m eager to see Helen’s book — most of what I know of her work is Rust Belt/Western PA New York landscape style.
