Pushcart Prize Nominations 2012


We are pleased to announce our nominations for this year’s Pushcart Prize Series in the areas of fiction, nonfiction, poetry and translation. This was a very difficult decision, narrowing our nominees, as we have been honored to publish outstanding works by outstanding writers throughout every issue. Congratulations to our nominees and best wishes to them and all the Pushcart Prize nominees from our colleague journals. It has been a fantastic year in literature both print and online.

  1. Ditto Sam, all wonderful pieces. Egan’s poem is sensual, light, moving and revelatory–Satie is with the reader!
