Rust + Moth’s Summer 2019 issue is live! With new work from such writers as Alice Pettway, E.A. Petricone, Marie Baléo, and Imran Khan, these poems excavate and lift up the past. Here you will find sarcophagi, nucleic acid, multiple tornadoes, and burning incense — all things beating back against the current as they rise.
We’ll be publishing new poems online every week and building momentum toward a finalized print edition in June. Join us online as the issue unfolds!

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.
