“Adoption is complicated. Poetry is complicated.” These are the lead lines for a new literary blog curated by Eileen R. Tabios, Poets on Adoption. The site features works by “poets with adoption experiences” as they “mine the intersections of poetry and adoption,” sharing some of their experiences with adoption and how it may or may not affect their poems and/or poetics. Poets on Adoption will be updated over time as more poets send in their contributions.
The inaugural post includes works by Allison S. Moreno, Amanda Mason, CB Follett, Christina Pacosz, Craig Watson, Dana Collins, Dana R. LePage, Dee Thompson, Eileen R. Tabios, Giavanna Munafo, Jan VanStavern, Jennifer Kwon Dobbs, Jim Benz, Joy Katz, Judith Roitman, Laura McCullough, Lee Herrick, Marcella Durand, Mary Anne Cohen, Michael D Snediker, Michele Leavitt, Natalie Knight, Ned Balbo, Nick Carbo, Phillippa Yaa de Villiers, Rosemary Starace, Samantha Franklin, Sharon Mesmer, and Susan M. Schultz.
Poets on Adoption is “always looking for more POETS WITH ADOPTION EXPERIENCE to participate in this project.” Visit the site for more information.
