Poetry Books 2011: Indie Lit Award Suggestions

Although official nominations for the 2011 Indie Lit Awards will not be accepted until September, I wanted to start collecting recently published poetry titles for consideration.  I’m borrowing this idea from Eclectic/Eccentric, who created a running list for her category, speculative fiction.

Also, if you want a handy tutorial on how to search for the latest poetry books, please visit Regular Rumination.  I couldn’t have explained it better.

To access this list at any time, please click on this icon in the right sidebar.

So, here’s a ever-growing list of poetry books published in 2011; please feel free to leave titles in the comments and I will see that they are included:
