Here's how we're choosing the poetry for the anthology. Caper is happy to have the help of accomplished poets and writers to read over this year's (Jan—Aug. 2010) published pieces of poetry for our Best-of Anthology. NOTE: For poetry and fiction that will be published in the next three months, your work will be considered for the Spring 2011 anthology.
Two immensely talented poets will be selecting the best poems published by Caper Literary Journal this year.
Our selection approach this year both enables your work to be read by accomplished and acclaimed poets while automatically entering your work for consideration.
Leslie Adrienne Miller, the writer of 7 collections of poetry and recipient of over a dozen literary awards, including a Pushcart Prize and a National Endowment for the Arts Poetry Fellowship. Published in many journals and magazines, she holds a Ph.D. from the University of Houston, an M.F.A. from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, an M.A. from the University of Missouri, and a B.A. from Stephens College.
Robert Lee Brewer is the editor of the Writer’s Market books, Poet’s Market and WritersMarket.com, in addition to maintaining the Poetic Asides blog for Writer's Digest. Brewer has published poems in several print and online publications.
Your poetry is automatically considered and will be read by our guest judges.
If your work is selected by the judges as a "Best-of Caper 2010" piece, you will be printed in our year-end anthology (end of December print) and honored on the website in November.
