S.H. Lohmann ’08, M.F.A. ’12 and Brittney Scott M.F.A. ’10 are two of the poets whose work is featured in Best New Poets 2014, an annual anthology of 50 poems from emerging writers that will be published this November. Each year, a guest editor selects poems from nominations made by literary magazines and writing programs, as well as an open internet competition. This year’s guest editor, award-winning poet and author Dorianne Laux, chose Lohmann’s “Lullaby” and Scott’s “The Money Shot.” Launched in 2005, the Best New Poets anthology series is published by Samovar Press/University of Virginia Press.
