We’re pleased to say that we’re nominating for the Pushcart Prize starting this year. Each year, mags/presses are allowed to nominate 6 works. Two issues fall within the calendar year (SW #002 and the forthcoming Epistolary), so we’ve chosen a few from each. Our envelope of nominations is on its way to be added to the list, and we look forward to the press’ decision. Winners, as chosen by Pushcart, will printed in the Best of the Small Presses anthology.
Our 6 nominations are as follows:
“Mulberries” by Dustin Parsons, from SW#002.
“A Letter of Love and Betrayal” by Meg Tuite, from Epistolary.
“Everything Afterwards Had Been” by Anna King, from SW#002.
“Letter to Virginia” by Lori Brack, from Epistolary.
“Retired Freedom Fighter Responds to Her Lover’s Marriage Proposal” by Emily Rose Cole, from Epistolary.
“Dearest Eli” by Sarah McCartt-Jackson, from Epistolary.
In honor of the PP noms, we’ve decided to tweet 140 (or fewer) characters from each of the contributors in SW#002. From now to 14 December, you’ll find little snippets of poetry & prose in our sweet little feed.
