Poetry Books to Come

It’s the last day of 2012, and it’s time to look forward to the New Year.  For the past month or so, I have collected a list of poets and their forthcoming books.  The list (both chapbooks and full-length collections) is not in any particular order (mostly because I’ve been too busy/lazy to organize the litany of collections that are coming out in 2013).  I know that I’m still reading books from 2012, but I am eager to dive into this great list of titles!  (Disclaimer: I really tried to doublecheck names and titles, but if I made a mistake, please let me know.)
