The Best of the Net!

Since the wonderful editors at Glass: A Journal of Poetry have posted the news, I can too!  My poem, “The Summer I Stopped Catching Bees” has been picked for the 2011 Best of the Net Anthology by Sundress Press!

Thanks to Holly and Anthony, editors of Glass, for nominating my poem, and thanks to judge Mary Biddinger, for picking my poem.

The anthology should be online by the end of February!

Rain & Some Good News

It has rained straight since Friday morning, and the forecast doesn’t call for that to change.  In some ways, our beautiful Autumn October has been ruined.  When I look outside, all I see is a child’s drippy watercolor painting where all the bright hues have run together.  And it’s damp.  And it’s cold. 

Still, I got some good news yesterday.  Holly Burnside and Anthony Frame, editors of Glass: A Journal of Poetry, dropped me a note to say that they nominated my poem, “The Summer I Stopped Catching Bees” for Sundress Publications 2011 Best of the Net Anthology.   Here’s the announcement here, and you can read my poem here.  Thanks Holly and Anthony!

New Work at Glass

The newest issue of Glass: A Journal of Poetry is up and live, and my poem “The Summer I Stopped Catching Bees” joins many other wonderful works.  I have been a fan of this journal ever since Sandy Longhorn introduced me to an issue through her poem “Flood Plain.”  If you enjoy what you read, consider submitting — their reading period opens back up in September.
