Congratulations to the fifty emerging poets selected by Mary Szybist for inclusion in Best New Poets 2016! We're pleased to share that Moriah Cohen's poem "Snow Downgraded to Nuisance on the Narrow Street," originally published in the Winter 2016 Issue of The Adroit Journal, made the list.
Other than in The Adroit Journal, Moriah Cohen’s poetry has been published in Hayden’s Ferry Review, Hoot: A Mini Literary Magazine on a Postcard, Word Riot, Baltimore Review, and Narrative, where she took runner-up in their 30 Below Contest in 2013. She has an MFA from Rutgers University’s Newark Campus. Currently, she lives in New Jersey with her two sons.
