Poetry Month in Hollis, Queens

Run-DMC’s Joseph “the Rev. Run” Simmons seeks to be named poet laureate for the NYC borough of Queens.

The April issue of Poetry Magazine includes dueling reviews of Garrison Keillor’s recent Good Poems anthology. Poet August Kleinzahler reportedly reviews more than the anthology, calling Keillor’s radio shows “comfort food for the philistines.”

The new issue of Bookslut includes an interview with Poet Molly Peacock about formalism and more. (First and last links via Bookninja.)
