Awards Eligibility Post — Holly Lyn Walrath

What I Published in 2022!

Holly Lyn Walrath


​The gash of your mouth opens
wide around the cold
porcelain of the condemned —
the lonely, the wasteful, the lavish
like a kitten dead in the road
all things are wanting to you

Wow, I really can’t believe this year is almost over. This year, I am very glad to have published in some outstanding anthologies and pro markets. I want to thank all the editors and publishers who continue to support my writing — I would not be here without you! And thank you to all the readers, writers, and friends who have read my writing. Particular thanks to Alex Tonelli of Kipple Press for translating my book The Smallest of Bones (first published by Clash Books) into Italian!

My short stories “Twelve Babies” and “The Asylum” are eligible for the HWA Bram Stoker Award. My poems are eligible for the SFPA Rhysling Award. If you would like a PDF of any of these works, please email me: hlwalrath (at) gmail (dot) com.
