Pass-Along Poems

Spread the word about debut poets and their work with this Pass-Along Poems chapbook. We’ve compiled poems from each of the twelve poets featured in our fourth annual roundup, “First and Foremost,” in the January/February 2009 issue of Poets & Writers Magazine. Use these instructions to print, assemble, and bind several of your own handcrafted, saddle-stitched editions. Remember to use a heavy stationery for the interior pages and a card stock for the covers. For an extra touch, forgo the stapler and use needle and thread instead. Add your recommendations for first-time poets on the back pages, and while you’re at it, paste in your own polished, unpublished work or that of others you admire.
