A Wealth of Poetry on Scribd

ScribdlogoI confess to being late to the party on Scribd.com. At first I thought it was a repository for journalists' primary sources (court documents, transcripts, etc.). Then a friend mentioned the site featured thousands of unpublished works of fiction, with several writers critiquing each other's work. It's both of these things, and, due to myriad other uses I have yet to discover, Scribd's blossomed into a very large community of readers.

So we're pleased to announce our partnership with them, starting with a selection of recent work by Les Murray, Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, Christian Wiman and others. We'll be adding more poetry throughout April, so please check back often.
