Best New American Voices 2010

The VQR blog has a review of the Best New American Voice 2010 anthology, which came out recently. Best New American Voices, for those that don't know it, features work submitted by MFA programs and writing conferences across the country. It's a good way to check out the quality of work being produced by MFA students from various programs (though it's by no means the only indicator, of course).

The VQR blog post also mentions the "rumored demise" of the yearly anthology -- anyone know more about this?

I hope they're just rumors. The neat thing about BNAV is being tapped by the editors as someone with talent and promise...at least enough talent to be among the selected writers of a particular edition. Otherwise, it's not the rumored demise of the AWP, Poet & Writers, The Poetry Foundation, ...etc. The recent addition of Southern Connecticut CW MFA is also postive news. The writers will still be around...(Thank Goodness)..though BNAV might not.

Here's the confirmation about the demise -- at least according to this writer/blogger. I'm not aware of an official statement from the publishers yet.

John Kulka told a crowd at the Sewanee Writers' Conference that the current publisher had declined to pick up the contract for another year. He said that he thought there would be a "year or two" hiatus but that he was confident the series would "find a home elsewhere."
