Here at Rising Phoenix Review, we count our days in poetry. The poems we feature are the landmarks that help us navigate the world. This group of poets helped us survive the wilderness of the past year. We thank each of them for their work and for having the bravery to share their voices with the world. We are elated to nominate each of these poets for Best of the Net Anthology 2018!
