Pushcart Time of Year


Every year, small presses and literary journals are invited to nominate six pieces they’ve published that year for a Pushcart Prize, which comes with publication in the yearly Pushcart anthology. Obviously, the Pushcart folks get a ton of nominations, and a lot of the prizes go to work from top journals (often for good reason)—the hard part is actually winning. Nonetheless, I think it’s a small honor for one’s work to be chosen by a journal as a representation of their best work from that year.

I’m very happy that two journals have nominated my poetry for a Pushcart Prize this year, so I’ll have two poems in the hat: “In Hurt, Virginia,” published by The Collagist in August, and “Music Box,” published in the Jabberwock Review this summer. Here’s to dreaming?
