John Hoppenthaler Curates Women's Poetry for Connotation Press

In 2009, Publisher’s Weekly excluded women from its list of Top Ten Books. This inspired John Hoppenthaler to edit a special collection of women’s poetry for online journal Connotation Press http://http//

This issue features Maxine Kumin and Alicia Ostriker; I am honored to have poems in this e-zine (, along with Claudia Emerson (Pulitzer Prize), Fleda Brown (former Del. Poet Laureate), Annie Finch (founder of WOM-PO, the Discussion of Women’s Poetics listserve), Allison Joseph, Janice Harrington, Lola Haskins, Amy Newman, Martha Rhodes, Maureen Seaton, Erinn Batykefer, Joni Wallace, and Anna Akhmatova. Please visit this website, and many thanks to John for his “Poetry Congeries-January 2010.”
