Five poems were included in Best American Poetry 2016, guest edited by Edward Hirsch: “Hubert Blankenship” by David Bottoms, “Humanity 101” by Denise Duhamel, “The Kiskiminetas River” by Peter Everwine, “If He Came & Diminished Me & Mapped My Way” by Larry Levis, and “Vineyard” by David St. John. Poems “Revolt of the Turtles” by Stephen Dunn and “Walk” by Jane Springer appear the Pushcart Prize XLI, and the story “God’s Plan for Dr. Gaynor and Hastings Chiume” by Saral Waldorf appears in Best American Mystery Stories 2016. All three editions are available now. Kudos all around!
