SFPA Nominations Controversy

The Science Fiction Poetry Association is in the middle of a controversy after announcing that it was declining the nomination of the poem “I Will Be Your Grave,” by Tlotlo Tsamaase in the Long Form category as not containing enough speculative material. The poem was nominated by A.J. Odasso, one of the editors of Strange Horizons and appeared on the SFPA’s page as a nomination prior to its rejection. Accusations have been made at SFPA, which has admitted that they failed to follow their own policy prior to removing the poem.
