CFP: DLB American Poets of the 21st Century (deadline various; collection)

I am seeking contributors for The Dictionary of Literary Biography volume on
"American Poets of the 21st Century," a reference work about poets and their
lives and careers. The series is widely available in libraries and if you
are unfamiliar with the series, I suggest you look at the volumes concerning
American Poets since World War II, edited by R.S. Gwynn and Joseph Conte to
give you an idea of the format. You should also consult the web site of the
publisher, Bruccoli Clark Layman for further information:
