Fleda Brown - A resource for learning poets

I have been reading The Best American Poetry 2010, and for the past few days I have been captivated by Fleda Brown's "The Dead." Not only is her poetry very good, and each poem needs to be savored for several days, she also has one of the best tutorials I have found on her website for emerging poets.

This is her website:

This is the best portion where she talks about poetry, essentially explaining poetry that she likes:
