Mike Levine and the folks at Northwestern UP have published some of the strongest poetry collections I have read over the past few years. The books look fantastic, and Northwestern covers a broad range of aesthetic sensibilities—Greg Brownderville to Jehanne Dubrow to Greg Fraser to Christina Pugh to Nikky Finney to Amit Majmudar to Alicia Stallings.
*Throughout Poetry Month 32 Poems will use this space to praise presses, journals, and readings series that bring poetry to us in a special way. Our hope is that we can point new fans in their direction and publicly thank editors and curators for their work. Check in with us again tomorrow for another poet’s recommendation.
