In honor of National Poetry Month, Gyroscope Review solicited information on poetry books and chapbooks published within the last year from our friends on Facebook. What we wanted was to share as many links as we could to poetry that deserves to be read, savored, honored.
Poets work hard. They don’t always get paid. And PR for a book or chapbook of poetry is a challenge. We want to do our part to make it better for the poets among us.
And now, without further ado, here is what we’ve gathered so far from the call we put out (in alphabetical order by author). Share it, follow the links, acquire some poetry for yourself.
If you are a poet with a book/chapbook published in the last year (since last National Poetry Month), and you would like to be part of this effort, contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org. If we get more responses, we will do another post this month.
