In our New American Poets Series, the PSA recognizes some of the most innovative and interesting poets to publish a first book. For our 2015 feature, we asked previous New American Poets to select favorites and write a brief introduction to their work. Each poet is represented below by a poem along with this introductory statement. New American Poets has been presented biannually since 2003; browse the archives to discover notable new poets of the last decade!
