About the Best Words in Their Best Order

THE BEST WORDS IN THEIR BEST ORDER is Farrar, Straus and Giroux’s blog in celebration of National Poetry Month 2007. It will run only for a limited time, from April 1st to April 30th, and will focus on poetry as a spoken art form––meant to be listened to and read aloud––and on the processes that go into making a physical book of poetry.

Original material created in conjunction with FSG’s legendary roster of poets will be available for free here throughout the month: MP3s of our poets reading, broadsheets posters for download, book giveaways, and even a ringtone for your cell phone.

Enjoy the site, and of course, National Poetry Month. Any questions or comments can be directed to
