Poetic Lives Online

Congratulations to Rae Armantrout for winning the National Book Critics Circle Award for her collection Versed.

This post by Al Filreis made me send him a Facebook friend request, just so I can find out how the conversation ended. (If you friend request me, I'll probably say yes--I'm a bit of a whore.)

Jessica Smith has more on her series about women in poetry and poetry-blogging.

The Washington Post covers split This Rock.

Google has reached a deal with Italy to scan books. Older books, mind you, out of copyright, but still, it's a start.

I really enjoyed this poetry lecture featuring five Muslim American poets: Raza Ali Hasan, Ibtisam Barakat, Fady Joudah, Kazim Ali, and Khaled Mattawa. It's 45 minutes long and that's only part one, but it's worth the time.

This week's Twitter recommendation is Katrina Vandenberg. She's one of the poets we'll be featuring during our National Poetry Month poem-a-day project. More on that soon.
