We are pleased to announce twelve new Poem-a-Day guest editors who will each curate a month of poems in 2020. The guest editors, who include the current U.S. poet laureate Joy Harjo, are all award-winning poets who represent wide-ranging editorial perspectives, and hail from ten different states.

"Working with guest editors to produce Poem-a-Day helps ensure that we are publishing an even greater array of poets and poems. With the guidance of the forthcoming 2020 guest editors, we'll present another year of poems not to miss. If you're interested in American poetry and poets, Poem-a-Day is essential reading," said Jennifer Benka, executive director of the Academy of American Poets.
