Spring 2019 is Live

Rust + Moth’s Spring 2019 issue now rises from the depths! With new work from such poets as Suzanne Langlois, Arah Ko, Emily Schultz, and John L. Stanizzi, this ominous volume is an treatise on water, fluidity, and thirst.

We’ll be publishing new poems online every week and building momentum toward a finalized print edition in March. As always, join us online as the issue gathers steam.

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!
