2009 Rhysling Award Eligible Poems

The Rhysling Award recognizes excellence in speculative poetry. Members of the Science Fiction Poetry Association may nominate poems, one each in the short (1-49 lines) and long (50+ lines) categories. (If you are not yet a member, you can still join and get in on this year's Rhysling activity.) Later, members receive a copy of the award anthology with most of the nominated poems reprinted, so they can vote on the best poems.
