Best of Poetry Hickory Anthology

I proofread the Best of Poetry Hickory manuscript today, and I am nearly overwhelmed by the quality of work it includes.  So many of the poems are ones that I could easily call my favorite of the year, my favorite by a particular author, in many cases one of my all-time favorites.  Here is a short list of poems in the anthology that I just can’t stop reading.

Rob Abbate’s “Ecco Homo”

Maureen Sherbondy’s “Praying at Coffee Shops in the South”

Rhett Trull’s “The End of the Hour”

Tony Ricciardelli’s “Sins of My Father”

Tony Abbott’s “Blood Red of Late October”

Malaika Albrecht’s “The Riddle Song”

Richard Allen Taylor’s “Playing Catch”

And there are many, many more.  I can’t wait until it’s available, and I can’t wait for the Anniversary Reading of Poetry Hickory on 9/13.

Thanks to all of the wonderful poets who have come to Hickory and shared their work with us this year.
