Coming up in this week's Sapling

“I look for poems to give me goosebumps, to surprise and delight me, and to sometimes break my heart. As an editor, I need to see that a poem takes risks. I would rather publish an adventurous poem that has a misstep or two, versus a slick and polished safe poem.”—Mary Biddinger, Editor-in-Chief, along with Jay Robinson, of Barn Owl Review, from this week’s feature article. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of: University of Notre Dame Press! InDigest! Hub City Press!
