Coming up in this week’s Sapling

Matthew Zapruder, poet and editor for Wave Books, discusses the subjective difficulty of defining a “great manuscript,” erasure poems, and what’s involved in the far-reaching job of a poetry editor. In every issue, BLP profiles a journal and small press that we love and gives you the scoop on an upcoming contest.
