The Contemporary Poetry and Poetics Working Group (CPPWG) reads poems. We read old books of poetry and new books of poetry, but mostly the newest ones. Our discussions are aimed at understanding what poets are producing now, and why their work looks (and sounds and feels) the way it does.
NOTE: Please visit us at our new website. While we will continue to keep this page updated with member information and group readings—and while our resources here will remain active—timely events and meeting information, as well as other posts of interest and a broader community interface, can be found here:
