Tag Archives: Best of the Net


It’s nomination season in the literary world — the time when publications select “best-of” poems, stories, etc., from the year’s issues for possible inclusion in anthologies with wide distribution. It’s a surprise and an honor to have one of my found poems, we are bound, nominated for Best of the Net by The Gravity of the Thing.

This is actually my third Best of the Net nomination and I’m enormously grateful to each of the publications that have seen fit first to publish my work and then to nominate it!


Each year, Sundress Publications publishes a Best of the Net anthology. Nominations are submitted by journals and publishers (including self-published), who select their choices from among all of the material they have published online for the past year. Three judges then review the nominated poems, stories, and essays, and decide which ones will appear in the anthology.

To be nominated is an honor. I am very grateful to Floating Bridge Press for including my poem, Bone, which appeared in Pontoon Poetry in November 2018, among their six nominees.

(This is my second Best of the Net nomination. A series of my found poems were nominated in 2015 by Atlas & Alice.)
