I am very pleased to announced that, as of this morning, Dana Goodyear is our 2009-10 Poem of the Year judge. She will receive the top poems from May of last year, through April this year, when April''s is available.
It is so involved to do a representative webography of Dana''s work, because she is so involved with so much in our culture. But here''s where we can begin.
Her remarkable web site: [url=http://www.danagoodyear.com/]Dana Goodyear[/url]. There, you''ll find sections on her non-fiction, her poetry, and on her.
Dana is a senior editor and columnist for The New Yorker: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/bios/dana_goodyear/search?contributorName=Dana Goodyear

She writes for the New York Times (http://query.nytimes.com/search/sitesearch?query=dana+goodyear&more=date_all), for example: Meditations on the Commonplace: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/11/20/books/review/20goodyear.html
