    It’s day three of the National Book Foundation’s longlist announcements; today they’ve announced the list for the 2019 National Book Award in Poetry. Publishers submitted a total of 245 books to be considered by judges Jos Charles, John Evans, Vievee Francis, Cathy Park Hong, and Mark Wunderlich. All ten of the longlisted books this year come from independent publishers. (And while you’re at it, check out the longlists for Young People’s Literature and Translated Literature too.)
