I get asked for poetry recommendations all the time. Mostly, people want to know which contemporary women poets they should be reading. This is my Amazon list of personal favorites. It is my hope that I can maybe help someone discover a new favorite female voice in a historically male-dominated genre.
Also, if you have a Kindle or other e-reader and would be interested in a sampler in the form of an anthology of quality contemporary women’s poetry, you should check this out the superb Fire On Her Tongue, edited by Washington state poets Kelli-Russell Agodon and Annette Spaulding-Convy.
Soldier on, ladies!
