We are pleased to share that we have nominated the following three poems for Bettering American Poetry 2016:
“Football Season,” by Margaret Bashaar, from Some Other Stupid Fruit.
“Dive Straight into the Wreck,” by Joanna C. Valente, from Xenos.
“The Key Club,” by Saba Syed Razvi, from her Elgin Award-nominated collection of poetry, In the Crocodile Gardens.
Congratulations to these three nominees—and to all artists, including the rest of our wise & gifted authors, who have the courage and clarity of vision to continue creating beauty as they navigate this difficult world. We see you, and we appreciate your work.
