The 2016 Luminaire Award for Best Poetry
WINNERS & SHORTLISTED FINALISTS

We here at Alternating Current feel that it is highly important to reward our authors with every possible chance for recognition of their fine crafts. We are pleased to announce the winners and finalist shortlist for The 2016 Luminaire Award for Best Poetry, honoring the independent press’ best poems. The pieces are judged blindly by an external panel to determine the semifinalist longlist and then a finalist shortlist. The first place winner will be published in January, and the rest will follow, through December, with the winning poems being published once per month throughout the year on The Current. First through fifth places are also published in a triennial print and ebook award anthology.
