Rising Young Poets: Who Are Yours?

Bill Moyers asked former Poet Laureate Rita Dove whom she considered the young poets to watch in this new millennium. She provided an interesting but not entirely unexpected list of poets under 40. Experience some of those poets for yourself here.

Is there anyone you think she's missed? Critics have pointed out that the list is pretty mainstream and heavily features academics.

What would your list of rising young poets look like? I'll have a think and post my own shortly.
