Ten years of poetry annuals will be celebrated, honoring the editors of all 10 books. Sunstruck Matches, edited by Jen Karetnick, explores the theme of "pairings." Thirty-two poets and writers with connections to Florida – some acting together as collaborators on single pieces, a few writing in response to each other, and others working solo – contribute poetry, flash fiction and flash creative nonfiction. Each piece explores the idea of what it means to be paired, and the result is a unique and eclectic compilation that is a feast for the senses. The cover image is by Francie Bishop Good.
