Megan Levad, Jeffrey Schultz, Samiya Bashir, Dan Lau, Joshua Robbins :: Many poets have turned to an overt focus on ethics, while others resist writing that clearly springs from moral principles.

And would learning how to have these conversations in the classroom, rather than on social media, help us build a better poetry community?
