  1. INJUSTICE ALERT: in the Poetry category, "New and Selected Poems" by Cliff Burns is actually self-published. Black Dog Press is simply the name Mr. Burns puts on his self-published titles. As a "press", it has only published his own works (as a quick perusal of his catalogue will prove - http://cliffjburns.wordpress.c... ) and via POD/createspace, and so couldn't be considered an independent press by any traditional definition, I don't think. These days, self-published writers are calling themselves "indie writers" or "indie publishers" but I think what the ReLits intend to honour is small press titles only. That is, unless they've opened the floodgates to self-published works?
