I got the very welcome news yesterday that my poem “Kraken” has been shortlisted for the Interstellar Award for Speculative Poetry.
There are some fine poets on the shortlist, including two poets represented in The Stars Like Sand: Australian Speculative Poetry: they are P. S. Cottier, my co-editor on the anthology, and Kevin Gillam. Congratulations to Penelope, Kevin, and everyone else shortlisted!
In other news, I’m the overall editor for the Tuesday Poem blog this month, so I won’t be posting Tuesday Poems here during June. The Tuesday Poem this week is “Chernobyl Wedding, 1986” by Naomi Guttman, selected by Eileen Moeller: http://tuesdaypoem.blogspot.co.nz/2015/06/a-poem-by-naomi-guttman.html
