playful song called beautiful john blairJohn Blair’s A Playful Song Called Beautiful, winner of the Iowa Poetry Prize in 2015, will be available for purchase next month.

A Playful Song Called Beautiful utilizes poems “that are either formally rhymed and metered or written in syllabically structured three-line stanzas,” poems that “are elegant and earthy, sometimes profane, and sometimes lovingly playful.”

While waiting for the collection’s April 2016 release, check out some samples via the University of Iowa Press website before preordering a copy.
