Some Good News

I got some exciting news earlier this week. My poem "Manipulation" was nominated for a Rhysling Award. This is my first Rhysling nomination, and I'm pretty excited about it.

The Rhysling is awarded by the Science Fiction Poetry Association each year for best poem (as voted by members) published the previous year. There are two categories, short (under 50 lines) and long (over 50 lines). It is the biggest award for speculative poetry.

My poem "Manipulation" first appeared in Scifaikuest in the May 2009 online edition. It is in the long poem category.

You can read the full text of my poem here — you'll have to scroll down to find it.
