In addition to showcasing the hand-curated poems that comprise the majority of each issue of Poet Lore, editors Jody Bolz and E. Ethelbert Miller know that community builds upon everyone who participates in it―poets and their readers—which is why these editors are both generous and smart to share the pages of Poet Lore with other great poet-editors.

Our World Poets in Translation portfolio features translated work by another poet. Poet Lore has always championed portfolios of translation that introduce our readers to exciting poets from around the world.

In Poets Introducing Poets, the keen eyes of Poet Lore‘s contributing editors are focused on introducing our readers to writers they admire or those who have never been featured in the magazine.
