It's definitely an interesting idea that Jeannine Hall Gailey raises. I've actually pondered this myself before as a way to bring contemporary poetry to the masses.
Jeannine says her dream panel of judges would include Bob Hicock, Denise Duhamel, and either Louise Gluck or Margaret Atwood (heck, why not both?).
Two of these poets would definitely be on my dream panel too. And then I'd throw in someone random like Paris Hilton or Hulk Hogan. Just to boost ratings, of course.
Who would be on your panel?
