News at Eleven: Kim Roberts, editor of the online

Beltway Poetry Quarterly magazine, says she was an early technology adopter. She began publishing contemporary poets and out-of-print and deceased writers in 2000. The Web can honor the form, increase access to poetry and build community, she says, but when it comes to e-readers, she doesn't know of poets who publish their work on them.

"It does seem like some technologies are better suited for some genres," Roberts says. "Maybe the Web is really well suited to poetry and the Kindle is really well suited to prose."
