Some Good News While You’re Waiting for Boxcar

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:58 pm

(The next issue of Boxcar Poetry Review is almost done, so here’s some recent good news while you wait).

We are pleased to announce that three poems from Boxcar Poetry Review have been selected for Sundress Press’s Best of the Net 2007 Anthology:

  • “Forget” by Tamiko Beyer (Issue 7 – Mar 2007)
  • “Marrying the Violence” by Marty McConnell (Issue 4 – Sept 2006)
  • “How We’re Moved” by Heather Salus (Issue 6 – Jan 2007)

Congratulations to these poets on this accomplishment!  Poet Chad Davidson served as final judge.  Evidently only 20 poems were chosen out of all the poems published online between July 1, 2006 and June 30, 2007.  I’d consider 3/20 a pretty remarkable showing for our journal!

    This such welcome news! I’m so happy.I had no idea because I wasn’t notified (probably because Boxcar has my old email address that was disconnected after I graduated.) I’m curious, though: do I need to do anything or contact the anthology?

    Thanks again!
