Pushcart Prize Nominations

We are so grateful for the work that we have received this year, for the chance to read and to publish many folks in whom we really, truly believe. Over the course of our first few cycles on this project, we’ve had the privilege of meeting and getting to know so many new people, of hearing so many new voices. It has been wonderful to see so much interest in and support for our project. And so, in recognition of the talent and dedication of the writers who have made this last year possible, we are honored to announce our nominations for this year’s Pushcart Prize:

Adriana Campoy, Unsent Letter
Gayane Haroutyunyan, Please
Rachel Linn, Pass Slipped Stitch Over to Decrease
Maria Rosa Mills, Shapeshift
Audie Shushan, A Sky This Big
Steve Werkmeister, Going Home

It’s always tough to make final selections. We want to offer our congratulations to these writers, and to offer our sincere thanks and respect to everyone who contributed to our journal this year! Thanks for writing, thanks for reading, thanks for helping us do what we do.
