New Books by Poetry Monday Featured Poets

A few leaves and flowers are here in the Northeast today, and with them some welcome new books by poets you have seen in this column and in our archives.

First, Mihaela Moscaliuc, an assistant professor of English at Monmouth University and teacher in the low-residency MFA Program in poetry and poetry in translation at Drew University, has done us the great favor of bringing into English the poems of Romanian poet Carmelia Leonte.  Moscaliuc herself is Romanian by birth, but now writes in English.  This stunning book, The Hiss of the Viper, ( Carnegie Mellon University Press, 2014), contains poems in a voice like none we have ever heard or read before, as well as a valuable introduction by Moscaliuc.

It’s also a year when, looking back, we realize how many fine poets, well-known and lesser-known, we have lost recently – almost an entire “greatest generation.” (more…)

A Note from Our Poetry Editor

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Dear Poets,

Our Poetry Editor, Irene Willis,  would like to let you know that you can have three previously published poems unpublished in the monthly Poetry Monday section of this website. Please include a cover letter with all your contact information, a brief bio and a list of your publications. We are looking for unpublished poems of high quality. Occasionally, we will ask permission to use poems that have already been published, for which we need complete, accurate citations. If poems are accepted, we will contact the poet by e-mail and ask for the accepted poems to be sent in a single file as an e-mail attachment. We ask also that
International Psychoanalysis (www.internationalpsychoanalysis.net) be acknowledged for any of the poems we use.

–Irene Willis, Poetry Editor (more…)

Happy March, everyone! I wish it were Happy Spring, and I hope you’re not still buried in snow as we are here in the Northeastern U.S. It’s hard to believe that Daylight Saving Time begins March 8.
