Wordsmiths Books presents three poets, Catherine Pierce, David Welch, and Laura Newbern, who are featured in the collection, Best New Poets 2007. In just three years, Best New Poets has established itself as a crucial venue for rising poets and a valuable resource for poetry lovers. The only publication of its kind, this annual anthology is made up exclusively of work by writers who have not yet published a full-length book. The poems included in this eclectic sampling represent the best from the many that have been nominated by the country's top literary magazines and writing programs, as well as some two thousand additional poems submitted through an open online competition. The work of the fifty writers represented here provides the best perspective available on the continuing vitality of poetry as it's being practiced today. Wordsmiths Books is happy to present three of the poets included in the current 2007 edition, reading their poetry and signing the book: Catherine Pierce (Epithalamium), David Welch (Tribute), and Laura Newburn (In the Jewish Cemetery).
