Does the "School of Q" Blog?

I mean, really? I tried googling a lot of names of poets I'd associate with "mainstream" poetry, followed by the word "blog," and all it showed were other people's blog posts about them. (To make sure I was searching correctly, I entered "Joseph Harrington blog," and this here came up).

It may very well be that I don't know enough younger poets writing in the conventional acadmic mode to know which names to google.

Any ideas?

I hate to quote myself, but I included this passage in a blog post of my own sometime back:

Here is a list, in no particular order, of poets who the imperious Mr. Silliman has identified as School of Quietude members over the past five years or so:

Robert Bly
W. S. Merwin
Adrienne Rich
James Wright
Donald Hall
Philip Levine
Sharon Olds
Billy Collins
Mark Strand
Stanley Kunitz
Robert Hass
Charles Simic
Marie Howe
Yusef Komunyakaa
Lucille Clifton
Marvin Bell
Arthur Vogelsang
Louise Glück
Evan Boland
Dan Chiasson
Elsa Cross
Michael Lind
Michael S. Harper
Molly Peacock
Stanley Plumly
William Stafford
Kay Ryan
Jack Gilbert
Linda Gregg

I'd eliminate the dead and see if any of the others are haunting the blogosphere. Of course, Silliman doesn't seem to consign young poets with no reputation to the SoQ. Presumably their names don't generate the kind of traffic these names do.
