Editor Sarah Blake
We like poetry that’s important. Beautiful is not enough. Clever is not enough. We like poetry that reminds us that we’re complicated. Poetry that’s innovative, earnest, driven, aware–it stays with us. And we think all schools of poetry can accomplish the best of what poetry can offer. We’re excited to read your work.
Sarah Blake lives outside of Philadelphia with her husband and son. Most of her published poetry is about hip hop superstar Kanye West. Some of her favorite poets include Evie Shockley, Catie Rosemurgy, Brenda Hillman, and Thomas Sayers Ellis. Her own work has appeared in The Threepenny Review, FIELD, Boston Review, Sentence, and many other journals. Every April, she curates a tumblr of micro-essays about poetry: npmdaily.tumblr.com She has studied poetry at The College of New Jersey, The University of Texas at Austin, and The Pennsylvania State University.
