We’re as excited to introduce the newest addition to our distinguished Featured Poets roster as the poetry world in general should be to have her. Erika Luckert’s verse has all the punch and lyricism that longtime readers have come to expect from our pages, and I know readers will continue to love and follow her work for years to come.
