I am all a-bubble with excitement today! Cahoodaloodaling announced their 2015 Best of the Net nominations this morning, and my poem “Amelia Earhart Leaves her Husband” was among them!
The Best of the Net Anthology is released each spring by Sundress Publications. From their site:
This project continues to promote the diverse and growing collection of voices who are publishing their work online, a venue that continues to see less respect from such yearly anthologies as the Pushcart and Best American series. This anthology serves to bring greater respect to an innovative and continually expanding medium in the same medium in which it is published.
I’m honored to get a nod from Rachel Nix and Rhiannon Thorne at cahoodaloodaling, who have been beautifully supportive of my career (and who create wonderful art, to boot).
The finalists and winners will be announced some time in the spring of 2016.
I’m honored and humbled to announce that my poem “Love Song for Recovering Codependent” was selected by poet Allan Peterson to win the Lester M. Wolfson Student Writing Award in Poetry this year.
Congratulations to the other winners, as well:
Kristiane Weeks for “Shaken and Stirred”
Savannah Hope for “Eden”
Cassandra Laforest for “For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn”
Aaron Quist for “33 1/2”
Jennifer Jones for “Tornado Alley”
Anne Marie Lindgren for “Yellow Silk”
