Rhysling Nominated Poems from 2021

Posted by on Mar 1, 2022 in anthology:poem, awards, Blog | 0 comments

Each year, members of SFPA (Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association) nominate what they consider to be the best poems of the past year. Works are divided into two categories, short (under 50 lines) and long (above 50 lines). I’m honored this year to have FOUR nominated poems, two in each category, and all of them can be read online!

Within a few months, they’ll also be published in the SFPA Rhysling Anthology that members read before voting for their top poems (I actually won in 2019!). This will also be available for the public to buy from sites such as Amazon.

Here are my nominated poems:

SHORT

“Field Trip to See the Mermaid” in Mermaids Monthly
“How to Find Yourself Again” in Fantasy Magazine

LONG

“The Bookstore” in New Myths
“Follow the Meandering Path” in Abyss & Apex

Best of luck to all nominees!

fantasy magazine july 2021

I’m thrilled to have achieved a long-time goal to have something published in Fantasy Magazine. For a few years there, it looked like it wouldn’t be possible at all, as the magazine was no more… but now it’s back, I had my second chance, and I’m in with a very appropriate poem!

Read “How to Find Yourself Again” in Fantasy Magazine.
