As we edge closer and closer to our relaunch on April 24th, 2023, we like to introduce (and reintroduce) you to the five poets whose poems will be appearing in the first week.

We’re welcoming back four poets whose poems have previously graced our menu in the past. We’re also welcoming a wonderful newcomer whose poetry has never before appeared on our menu.

April 24th – We welcome back Paul Hooker. Paul had his first poem added to the menu in 2017.

April 25th – We’re honored to have Rosalie Sanara Petrouske nourish us with the first poem of hers to appear in Poetry Breakfast. She’s certainly not new to the poetry world. Her poems have appeared in Passages NorthRhino, Southern Poetry ReviewSky Island JournalLunch TicketSnapdragon, a Journal of Art and Healing and Still Point Arts Quarterly, among others. Her poetry manuscript Tracking the Fox recently won First Place in The Poetry Box 2022 chapbook competition.

April 26th – The ever prolific Peter M. Gordon servers up another tasty dish to our menu. Peter’s first addition to our menu was in 2012! And we’ve been enjoying his work ever since.

April 27th – We’ll be serving another soothing cup from Sarah Russell. Her first offering on our menu appeared in 2017 and we’re delighted to have her words grace our table again.
