So, my poem “The Bottoms of the West End of Kentucky” is nominated for annual Best of the Net. And that’s exciting! And a big Thank You to Pea River Journal!
We publish a small slice of each issue online, and that small slice tends to come from our favorite-of-favorites list. Of that small slice published between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, we nominated seven pieces for Best of the Net:
Greg Brown, “Unnatural Disasters“
Lauren Camp, “Visit to Iraq“
Matthew Kabik, “In the Orchard, In the Field“
Al Maginnes, “How Things Break in This World“
Corey Mesler, “A Small Simic Afternoon“
Jose Padua, “Gin and the River“
Eric M. R. Webb, “The Bottoms of the West End of Kentucky“
If you haven’t read them yet, please do. Seek these writers out wherever you can find them.
(Thank you, Sundress.)
