2020 Orison Anthology Nominations
Here at EX/POST, we're thrilled to announce our 2020 nominations for the Orison Anthology, an annual collection of the finest spiritually engaged writing published in the year. We wish the best of luck to all our nominees:
JOHN MCCARTHY for his poem "Narrative in Which our Faithless Speaker Stands Atop the Water Tower of His Childhood in Rural Illinois watching the World End" in ISSUE I of EX/POST, readable here.
ERIN L. MILLER for her poem "The Goat" in ISSUE I of EX/POST, readable here.
JOHN SIBLEY WILLIAMS for his poem "Conquistador" in ISSUE I of EX/POST, readable here.
In the words of their staff, the Orison Anthology "aims to not only fill, but expand the space left by the absence of the Best American Spiritual Writing series. In addition to reprinted material, each year the anthology will also include new, previously unpublished works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry by the winners of The Orison Anthology Awards, judged by different prominent writers each year." Their most recent volume is viewable here.
