A suggestion for NaPoWriMo
Didi Menendez writes: 'May I suggest that during National Poetry Month that instead of just thinking about your own poetry that you also consider writing a review (at least one a week = 4 reviews) of someone else's poetry (book, individual poem, magazine, journal, broadside, etc.).'

The "madam" behind the Poetry Brothel is Stephanie Berger, 23, an M.F.A. student in creative writing at The New School. A petite redhead with piercing eyes, she can usually be found either sashaying through the crowd kissing cheeks and pimping out her harem, or screaming obscenities into a megaphone when patrons fail to quiet down for an open performance.

Poetry couples: Let me count the ways...
Are partnerships between poets a good thing? When poets live together, do they bring out the worst or the best in one another? Do they have to draw blood or be blighted by unidentified lung disease or end in suicide? Must they be passionate but painful, creatively productive but emotionally destructive?
