Best of the Net & Pushcart Nominees 2018

The Best of the Net Anthology gives much-appreciated recognition to authors and journals who publish online, while the Pushcart Prize honors the best of America’s small presses. This fall, Rust + Moth devoted time, love, and a few stamps to nominating our favorite poems for these anthologies, and we are proud to shout their names from the rooftops now.

Best of the Net Anthology

Pushcart Prize

Electricity, innovation, and language rarely strike the same hilltop like this. We invite you to take a closer look at these pieces and see with fresh eyes what poetry is capable of.

Also, if you’re thinking of contributing to Rust + Moth, there’s no better place to get a feel for our journal than these selections. It took us weeks to distill these twelve from the many wonderful poems we published last year — thank you to all of our contributors for making this such a difficult decision. And good luck to our nominees!

Winter 2018 is Live

Rust + Moth’s Winter 2018 issue is live! With new work from such poets as Tanya Singh, Reilly D. Cox, Yuan Changming, and Darren C. Demaree, this one is a call to the center.

We’ll be publishing new poems online every week and building momentum toward a finalized print edition in December. In the meantime, we ask you to look up every once in a while. Breathe deep. Slow-chew the holy.
