Poetry Northwest has published more excellent work online and in print in 2018 than it has during any in the past decade. And to spotlight some of that work–the best and most-read (that is, read by you) poems, essays and interviews first published by Poetry Northwest in the past year–we offer this gathering of beautiful sentences. Here, you’ll find links to the work of our six Pushcart Prize nominees, as well as to our most-read pieces for each half of the year. From all of us at Poetry Northwest: Thank you for reading. Stay awake. See you in the new year.
