Update 5/24: Here’s a list of all the winners. Pushcart 2014 Scan
Twitter is a live wire of journals and folks announcing Pushcart wins. Congrats to all the winners.
No More New Stories from the South
It’s been two years since the last issue of New Stories from the South launched. I’ve not been able to find any official word that the series was cancelled or if it went on hiatus. After twenty-five years it’s a sad thing to see simply fade away.
The 2013 Pushcart Rankings
Once again, Cliff Garstang has complied a wonderful list, ranking the 2013 Pushcart prize.
Pushcart Prize XXXVII (2013)
I received a full list of winners in the mail today and scanned it (poorly). You can find it linked below.
Pushcart Prize 2013 winners.
And the Winners are . . .
The 2013 Pushcart announcements went out as of today. I know of only two announcements but there are sure to be more announced via Facebook and Twitter, so send in a link once if you hear of one and I’ll do my best to post them.
Bess Winter’s story “Signs” from American Short Fiction
James Robison’s story “I See Men Like Trees, Walking” from Wigleaf
The Wigleaf story is interesting, because there have been so few stories selected from online journals in the Pushcart.
Matt Hotham sent in this link for two winners from BOA Editions
Michael Waters’s poem “Beloved,” from his collection Gospel Night, and Deborah Brown’s poem “Walking the Dog’s Shadow,” from her collection of the same name will be included in the 2013 issue.
Benjamin Percy’s story “Writs of Possession” published in Virginia Quarterly Review.
Jeanne Shoemaker’s story “Sonny Criss” published in Iowa Review. (First published story!)
Paul Stapleton’s story “The Fall of Punicea” published in J Journal: New Writing on Justice.
Jennifer Percy’s essay “Azeroth” published in AGNI. (She’s Benjamin Percy’s sister. They also each won an NEA grant this year. )
A recent letter from the MLA president regarding the abysmal state of adjunct contingent faculty is worth your time to read.
A New Year
I’ve updated the Best of the West page and created a page for the New Stories from the Midwest Anthology.
The Best American Series web page has entered the digital age, and a full list of presses and journals included in each anthology can now easily be found on the publisher’s website, which makes my job of updating their ranking pages a lot easier.
New Stories from the Midwest
This list ranks the number of times publications have appeared in, and were acknowledged in the Thirty other Distinguished Stories , within the New Stories from the Midwest Anthology.
