Because Dispatches from the Poetry Wars has a close relation to the Gloucester Writers Center (and to the Ralph Maud/Charles Olson Library), and because both editors of Dispatches have been invited to be the Gloucester Summer Writer in Residence (Mike in 2015; Kent for this summer, though now changed to 2018, due to an unexpected upcoming move to the state of Washington), we wanted to be sure we shared this wonderful article by Garrett Caples, at Harriet, the blog of our favorite High Culture Institution and Wall Street Poetry Outpost, the Poetry Foundation.
