An Index of Books Received and Considered (or To Be Considered)

Below is a partial list of books received and considered between 9.1.11 and 8.19.13. Books reviewed in The Huffington Post were selected from either this list, the hundreds of books submitted between 8.19.13 and the present, or a personal library of more than 2,000 contemporary poetry collections. The Huffington Post poetry review series does not consider fiction, nonfiction, or chapbooks in any genre. Many of the collections considered for the series but not selected are nevertheless of high merit; the appearance of a collection in the list below without an asterisk is not a comment on its value or ambition. Books are eligible for inclusion in the series for a decade from date of receipt. A key to the notations used in this catalog is at the bottom of the page.
