Pushcart 2015


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.

Update 4/27:

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.

Update 4/28:

Benjamin Percy’s story “Writs of Possession” published in Virginia Quarterly Review.

Update: 5/4:

Jeanne Shoemaker’s story “Sonny Criss” published in Iowa Review. (First published story!)

Update: 5/7:

Paul Stapleton’s story “The Fall of Punicea” published in J Journal: New Writing on Justice.

Update: 5/8:

Jennifer Percy’s essay “Azeroth” published in AGNI. (She’s Benjamin Percy’s sister. They also each won an NEA grant this year. )
