I found out last week that two of my poems have been nominated for Best New Poets 2012. The editors of In Posse Review gave the nod on my behalf. You can read the poems, “Starring as Vigilante” and “Colossal,” at inpossereview.com. Or check out the Best New Poets publications at bestnewpoets.org.

Also, I learned that the editor in chief at Finishing Line Press, Leah Maines, has fallen ill. Send good thoughts her way. As far as The Division of Standards is concerned, the associate editors are hustling to meet deadlines but there will likely be a delay of about two weeks. Books should arrive in late May.
