Looking at the sidebar of this blog, I see I've listed this purpose for it: "Kevin Walzer's meditations on poetry, publishing, business, and other creative pursuits."
True enough. However, if you read this blog with any regularity, or just scroll through the first page, you'll see that there's not a great amount of topical stuff, about poetry or anything else. Instead, what you see are mostly quick mini-reviews of various books of poetry.
Full dislosure: These are books that my press has published. I'm a voracious reader, but I'm not reviewing books at random: I'm offering my own readerly take on the books my press has chosen to publish. What did I like about these books that prompted my press to want to publish them?
I'm not aware of another poetry editor who writes about his or her editorial decisions in this fashion. When I started this blog, I thought I would write about books more or less randomly, but after writing a couple of short comments about the books my own press has published, I got hooked.
So please understand: these reviews are not objective. In fact, they are anything but. You won't see a negative review here. I'm writing about why I liked these books so much that I wanted my press to bring them to the world.
