Poetry Breakfast

Beginning March 20th, 2016 Poetry Breakfast will once again serve a little poetic nourishment every morning. Start your day with our new expanded menu. Poems, of course, are our specialty. But we will also be serving a fuller menu that includes poetry related creative non-fiction such as letters to and from poets, essays on poetry, and anything else that might feed a poet and poetry lover’s soul.



This Year’s Pushcart Prize Nominees from Poetry Breakfast

It was a daunting task to select just six poems.  But after carefully reviewing all the wonderful poems we’ve had the honor of publishing, we finally made our selection for this year’s Pushcart Prize Nominations.

Our congratulations to all six amazing poets.  Poetry Breakfast is grateful to all of you for letting your work find a home on our menu.

Our Pushcart Prize Nominations for this year are as follows:

Funeral Sandwiches” by Tricia McCallum

Reduced” by Marjorie Thomsen

We wish the best of luck to all our nominees.
