I am very pleased to announce that Dorianne Laux & Joseph Millar will be our judges for next winter, Jan-Feb-Mar 2010.

Here are their Wikipedia pages:

Here''s a good page on Dorianne:
Verse Daily: About Dorianne Laux and Columbia Poetry Review: http://www.versedaily.org/2008/aboutdoriannelauxcpr.shtml

Oh right . . . they''re married. Here are four poems, selected because of how they fit together and give voice to a working class life:

Telephone Repairman by Joseph Millar

The Shipfitter''s Wife by Dorianne Laux (one of her poems in Best American Poetry)

Oaks Card Club by Joseph Millar

Break by Dorianne Laux

Many of you know Dorianne from the book The Poet''s Companion: A Guide to the Pleasures of Writing Poetry (http://books.google.com/books?id=skuaq3033OoC), which she co-authored with Kim Addonizio. I''ve had that book for a decade, have read it thoroughly, have referred back to it, and recommend it.

There is a whole bunch out there on Joe and Dorianne. Here are their Google searches:
Be careful searching for Joseph''s poetry. There is another poet Joe Millar out there.

Many thanks to Joe & Dorianne.
