I am pleased to announce that my poem “The Fox and the Forest” (an erasure of Ray Bradbury) is the winner of the SFPA: Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association contest short form. Here’s what the judge had to say about the winners:

“Hybridity brings in endless possibilities when it comes to crafting and interpreting creative work, and these short pieces showcase the complexity of hybrid, speculative poetry.”
