PUSHCART NOMINATIONS FOR 2021

The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses, since 1976, is one of the most honored literary project in America – including Highest Honors from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Each year they welcome up to six nominations (print or online) from little magazine and small book press editors throughout the world. The nominations may be any combination of poetry, short stories, essays, memoirs or stand-alone excerpts from novels. The Pushcart Prize is one of the last surviving literary co-ops from the 60’s and 70’s.
