Already Looking Ahead

Kitsune Books, the lovely publishing company that brought us Jeannine Hall Gailey’s She Returns to the Floating World, has a note posted about their books for 2012!  So, I am thinking ahead too! As loyal fans of The Scrapper Poet know, at the end of December, I always post a list of poetry collections that are slated for publication in the upcoming year.  I’m gathering names now — so far, I have the following poets who have collections coming in 2012:  Mary Biddinger, Gabriel Welsch, Jehanne Dubrow, Lori Jakiela, Judith Vollmer, Paula Bohince, Emily Rosko, Traci Brimhall, Brent Goodman, Michael McGriff, Kathleen Flenniken, K.A. Hays, Patricia Smith and Eduardo C. Corral. 

If you have a collection coming out in 2012, or if you know someone I missed (and there are many names, I am sure, I’m a bit secluded here in rural Pennsylvania), please leave a note on my blog or drop me a line at
