Cutting a Swath

Have you seen it yet? The Poetry Princesses have been hard at work, and now the fruits of their labor are out there, ready for you to read. That's right, Sara Lewis Holmes, Laura Purdie Salas, Tricia Stohr-Hunt, Liz Garton Scanlon (the instigator!), Tanita S. Davis (TadMack), Andromeda Jazmon (Cloudscome) and Kelly Fineman have written their crown of sonnets. You can read the whole thing here, and if you click on their names you can read their individual blog posts with their poems and their reflections on the process. It's an amazing feat, one I got a glimpse of early on while Tricia was working on hers. I'm so delighted with the results--and you will be, too.
