I love poetry but recently realized there are quite a few poets winning Pulitzers and being honored as a Poet Laureate of whom I have never heard. And since poetry should be a year-round event and not reserved only for April’s National Poetry Month, it seems like a good idea to make a project. In no particular order, I am working my way through the U.S. Poets Laureate and poetry Pulitzer winners. This page will serve as an index for the project.
