New York, NY (October 13, 2022)—The Academy of American Poets announced today that it is launching “enjambments”,  a new, monthly interview series that will highlight a poet who has recently published a poetry collection. The series will feature both emerging and established poets. Each interview, along with poems from the poet’s new book, and a reading by the poet, will be published on and shared in the Academy’s weekly newsletter, as well as on its social media channels, reaching an estimated readership of 800,000+. 

The first interview, with Alexandra Lytton Regalado, will be published on October 17 in conjunction with the release of Regalado’s Relinquenda: Poems (Beacon Press, 2022).
