Ten years, ten women poets!
Every year we like to look forward to the books of the New Year. (You can take a look at last year’s list and see whether you think we did a good job of telling you what to look out for.) My list this year is dedicated to nine contributors (all women!) who have swept the poetry book contests this year and who have books forthcoming in 2014. My mission at Memorious has always been to seek out exciting emerging writers, so it is thrilling to see so many of our contributors publish their first and second books. My bonus tenth poet, Lisa Williams, publishes her third book this year with New Issues. So in celebration of ten years of publishing, here are ten Memorious poets to look out for in 2014!
