A Directory of American Poets. 1975 Edition.
Poets and Writers, Inc., New York, NY.
This second edition directory contains information about more than 1,500 living poets whose work has been published in the United States. The primary purpose of the directory is to help groups and individuals locate contemporary poets so that they can sponsor appearances by them. For each poet, the directory tries to provide a current address, telephone number, work preferences, and most recent book. The directory is arranged geographically (by state), and within each state poets are listed alphabetically. A separate alphabetical index of all poets is included, and a second index identifies poets with special ethnic backgrounds. Another section of the directory identifies sponsors, including 50 state arts councils. A Service Section covers materials (anthologies, films, videotapes, recordings, and audiotapes) and services (distributors, literary organizations, and bookstores) of use to both poets and sponsors and provides a checklist of the arrangements necessary for a successful poetry reading or workshop.
