Nominations for 2019 Best of the Net
At Inverted Syntax, we feel it is our responsibility to reward our contributors with recognition. This year, we are nominating poetry, nonfiction, and fiction pieces for the Best of the Net anthology from Sundress Publications. “This anthology promotes the diverse and growing collection of voices who are publishing their work online and serves to bring greater respect to an innovative and continually expanding medium.”
Editors of journals may submit up to six poems, two stories, and two works of creative nonfiction for consideration. “ Nominations must have originally appeared online, and must have been first published or appeared on the web between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.” Here is the list of the 2018 participating journals http://www.sundresspublications.com/bestof/journals.htm
In the 2018 Best of the Net, thirteen winners were selected in the poetry category, seven in fiction, and seven in nonfiction. We realize that each Best of the Net edition features work by many finalists and winners; however, we feel no matter the outcome, it is our responsibility to give our contributors the opportunity to have their work read by a wider audience, including the judges and editors of the anthology.
We are therefore delighted to nominate our contributors works for the Best of the Net, extending their audience, because we find them brilliant and necessary.
We wish our contributors the best of luck in the award process.
