Nominations for 'The Forward Prize for Best Single Poem'

For the first time The Forward Prize is open for all online poetry sites to submit nominations for the best single poem. An opportunity I didn't want to squander the opportunity, so I spent some time revisiting the past year's poetry and what a brilliant pleasure it was. After shortlisting, I have put forward the following three poems as Amaryllis' nominations. I hope you enjoy them too.

Leila K. Norako - Teaching on a Gun-Friendly Campus: A Brief Guide*

Maggie Mackay - How to Distil a Guid Scotch Malt

Ryan Warren - The Ravens of Japan

I'd also like to add a special mention to the following poem which was not eligible as it was part of a collection before the cut-off date - but it is one of my favourites.

Catherine Ayres - Single-breasted
