Sneak Peek for Poetry Friday 2019

Welcome to our first Poetry Friday gathering for 2019! (InLinkz at the bottom)

It's time again for me to gather all the poetry books for young people that I believe will be published in the year ahead. And I was shocked and happy to see I already have a list of 75+ books set to appear this year! WOO HOO! I usually only know about 20-30 books at this early date, then add to the list throughout the year and end up with around 100 titles. I hope this beginning list continues to grow and grow and grow! There are new poets to support, new forms and topics to consider, board books, nonfiction books, anthologies, novels in verse, memoirs, and more. Here's my "SNEAK PEEK" list thus far, but I know y'all will let me know of any additional titles or any errors you see here. Thanks!

Robyn Hood Black said...

Wow, Sylvia - what a list! And happy to see books by so many PF folks among the titles. Thanks for all you do to keep the world up to date on poetry for young readers, and thanks for hosting this week. Happy New Year! :0) (I have thoughts on Irene Latham's LOVE, AGNES and postcards and such this week.)

Michelle Kogan said...

Fantastic list Sylvia, I'm making a copy so I can move through it as the year unfolds. Thanks for for bringing it right to our fingertips!
I'm sharing my "one little word," a spattering of #haikuforhope– that I'm continuing, and some art.

Michelle Kogan said...

And thanks for hosting the Roundup!

Whispers from the Ridge said...

This is some list! Thank you so much for sharing this glimpse with us! I am sharing my reflection poem for the new year. Happy 2019 to you!

Alan j Wright said...

I love how much poetry is revered and promoted in the U.S. This is such an extensive list. I wish Australian publishers weren't so risk averse in relation to publishing poetry. It is a matter of some sorrow for me. Thank you hosting Sylvia and for the sumptuous list of poetic possibilities!

KatApel - said...

Wow! So much poetry. I am gobsmacked. As Alan said, there is a reservation amongst many Australian publishers. We are such a small market, so there is risk in everything - it's hard yakka getting poetry published here. Enjoy your wonderful bounty!

Catherine Flynn said...

Happy New Year, Sylvia, and thank you for hosting today! What an amazing variety of children's poetry to look forward to in 2019!

Linda Mitchell said...

Happy New Year! What an amazing group of books coming out this year. I'm delighted to see so many gorgeous topics and titles. Let's dig in! I'm ready!

Molly Hogan said...

laurasalas said...

Oh my goodness--what a wonderful list. I'll be coming back to put all of these on my to-read shelf! Thanks for including my titles--would it be possible to add that IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT is illustrated by Angela Matteson? Thanks! And thank you for hosting and celebrating!

Amy LV said...

Thank you, Sylvia, for hosting, for this list, for all of your lists, for your generosity, for brightening up conferences with your poemclothes...for being you! Peace and love to you in 2019!

Tabatha said...

What a list! Thanks for hosting, Sylvia!

Karen Edmisten said...

Little Willow said...

Thank you for hosting! Happy Friday to all of the poets and readers!

Michelle Heidenrich Barnes said...

Holey moley! Is it my imagination or is this list longer than ever??? I'm excited to take a closer look at so many of them. Thank you, as always, for rounding them up, Sylvia!

JoAnn Early Macken said...

Eric Ode said...

Outstanding list! Thanks, Sylvia, for all you do.

Matt Forrest Esenwine said...

Thanks for hosting, Sylvia - and for once again sharing your complete list of poetry for the new year! I'm sure it's not an easy thing to compile. (By the way, I think there may be one more of Lee's anthologies - I'm pretty sure he has another one besides the two listed, but you'll have to check with him)

Michelle Schaub said...

Sylvia, I always look forward to your yearly Poetry Sneak Peeks and often search back over previous years' lists when I'm looking for particular poetry books. Thanks for putting them together. I also have a poetry collection coming out this year with Charlesbridge called FINDING TREASURE: A COLLECTION OF COLLECTIONS. Would love for you to add it to the list!

Jean James said...

Your list is amazing. I'm new to Poetry Friday. Thanks so much for hosting.

Buffy Silverman said...

Thank you Sylvia for this wonderful list! Printing it off for my library days.

Sylvia Vardell said...

Hi, y’all and thanks for stopping by and for all your kind words. You’re right, making this list is a HUGE task, but also a labor of LOVE!
Michelle, congrats on your new collections collection! I’ll be adding that to the list ASAP!

Chris Baron said...

Hi Sylvia, thanks so so much for this list! I am so thankful to be a part of it. Just wanted to update you that WEIGHT has a new title: ALL OF ME--with a cover by Chris Sheban!

Looking forward to so many of these books!

Chris Baron

Jone said...

Oh Sylvia, Thank you for hosting and thank you for this list. It’s oozing with goodness.

Sylvia Vardell said...

More thanks and gratitude to each of you and our whole Poetry Friday community! Isn't it awesome?
And Chris, I've changed the entry to reflect your new book title and illustrator; Michelle, I've added your new "collections" collection. Thank you both for the updates!

Susan Bruck said...

Wow! That is quite a list!! Thank you, and thanks for hosting, too. I'm so glad to be part of this group--and glad to have so much poetry to look forward to here and in all those books.

Carol Varsalona said...

Sylvia, Thank you for being a wonderful host at the start of the new year. While I am late in sending this post, I am excited to have posted since I have been thinking about this #haikuforhope for several days. Your sneak peek is amazing so I would like to spend some time reviewing it. Enjoy your start to 2019,

Bridget Magee said...

I love seeing a poetry publication list this long, Sylvia. Thanks for compiling it. Here's 2019 poetry rocking the reading world! Cheers/en guete! *clink*

Heidi Mordhorst said...

Ooooooh, I just want to lie down and wallow around in that collage--and I believe I'll get to do just that, since I'm about to join the NCTE Poetry Awards Committee! I'm late posting, due to the burden of the year, but Ella Wilcox Wheeler and I have an essential and obvious wisdom to share. Thanks for hosting all us in so many ways for so many years, Sylvia. <3

Shauna LaVoy Reynolds said...

Phew, what a list! Thanks for including POETREE and giving me so many other titles to look forward to.

Sylvia Vardell said...

Thank you all for helping me kick off Poetry Friday 2019! What a great beginning!
And congrats, Heidi, on being on the NCTE Poetry Committee-- such an awesome experience.
Here's to heaps of poetry all year long!

Yvona said...

Sylvia, thank you for this incredible list! From verse novels for teens to board books for the youngest kids, Poetry is alive and well! It would be great if this list could somehow be subdivided - into verse novels, poetry collections, rhyming picture books, biographies, etc.
