Poetry Magazine

Amanda.jpg


Man, what did I do to deserve such talented friends? Amanda Jernigan is this month's featured poet in Poetry Magazine. I didn't know too much about the magazine, but upon reading the history section I learned that it was where T.S. Eliot was first published, and with "Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," no less. Prestigious stuff. Check out one of her poems here.
