Best of the Net 2014  


Sundress Publications is pleased to announce the publication of the 2014 Best of the Net Anthology. This project continues to promote the diverse and growing collection of voices who are publishing their work online, a venue that continues to see less respect from such yearly anthologies as the Pushcart and Best American series. This anthology serves to bring greater respect to an innovative and continually expanding medium in the same medium in which it is published.

Subsequent issues of the anthology will appear each spring with our submission period open from July 1st to September 30th each year. 2015 judges will be announced in the fall.
