Blogging about Poetry in December 2011

Well, we finished the year strong as December turned out to be a good month for blogging about poetry. My contributors pitched in and assisted with writings about the Eugene B. Redmond Digital Collection. Toward the end of the month, I started producing wrap-ups and notebooks reflecting on the year in poetry.

I was also pleased to learn that Sonia Sanchez was appointed Poet Laureate of Philadelphia at the end of the year.
