Egrets Reading

S*L and The Short-Short Rhysling Ballot

The November/December issue of Star*Line arrived today, looking great with poems by Darrell Schweitzer, Ann K Schwader, Yoon Ha Lee, JoSelle Vanderhooft, Steve Sneyd, Marcus Ewert, Melissa Marr, Andrei Dorian Gheorghe, Lee Ballantine, Greg Beatty, Denise Dumars, Marcus Ewert, Karen R Porter, K J Kirby, and Elizabeth Keogh.

On the line count research front, the breakdown is:

1-9 lines: 2 poems
10-49 lines: 11 poems
50+ lines: 2 poems

The issue also included the ballot for voting to add the short-short Rhysling Award category.

If you agree with me that very short poetry is inherently different enough to be considered in a different category, PLEASE RETURN YOUR BALLOTS TO BUD WEBSTER BY JANUARY 14TH.
