PoemoftheWeek.com was founded by Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum, author of Visiting Hours (2020) and Ghost Gear (2016).


Updated weekly throughout the Fall and Spring, PoemoftheWeek.com celebrates three poems from a book published by a single poet. Each celebration includes interviews with the poet, reviews of the collection, readings from the book, and other supplementary material that broadens the scope of the conversation between the poet and their work with the general public.


PoemoftheWeek.com is an essential resource for writers, teachers, and anyone interested in contemporary American arts and letters. For more information, contact Andrew at Andrew@PoemoftheWeek.com.

PoemoftheWeek.com does not accept submission.
