PoemoftheWeek.org is an online anthology of contemporary American (for the most part) poetry. Editor Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum founded PoW in 2006 as a small email list to friends, family, and colleagues that brought verse to people who were lovers

In the twelve years since PoemoftheWeek.org inception, PoW has become
an institution, featuring unknown poets alongside winners of the Pulitzer-Prize winners alongside those emerging. As Pow has
extended its reach, we have expanded our audience and have incorporated original interviews regarding the poems featured (rather
than regarding a poet’s entire school of thought and work) and previously-published interviews, original and previously-published
reviews of their collections, audio and video-recordings of our authors reading their work, and essays on poetics, the po-biz,
and the po-life.
