It's June! And here in Connecticut, it's almost summer. I always look forward to the Sealey Challenge in August, which is an endeavor to read a collection of poetry a day. Plus, after next week, I'll have more time in general for hunting down books and reading. Sometimes it can seem hard to track down lists of what's been published and what's on the horizon. Maybe you're searching for new titles, too. Here are some poetry-book resources to check out:
Spring 2023 poetry books, Publishers Weekly
Fall 2023 poetry books, Publishers Weekly
Best Poetry 2023, Book Riot (from March)
