(Another) Poem Nominated for Best of the Net


My poem “The Stranger” was nominated for inclusion in the 2015 Best of the Net. The poem, which is taken from my first chapbook, The Bureau, first appeared in the April 2015 issue of decomP

To be honest, I’m still stunned by this nomination, which I first saw sometime around 3 AM last night. decomP is a journal that I really admire and one that–beginning writers take note–sent a nice rejection the first time I submitted. I hope that you’ll check out the poem, and if you like it, consider reading (or teaching) The Bureau, which is available for free download via Sundress Publications.

And while you’re at it, check out decomP. Their nominations for Best of the Net are a great place to start.
