Congratulations to our Pushcart Nominations

We're very proud to announce our 2019 Pushcart Prize nominations. Two of our nominees, Dennis Norris II and Karissa Chen, were part of our 2018 chapbook series curated by T Kira Madden. This collection has been our best-selling chapbook series to date, and Dennis Norris II's volume was named a Staff Pick at Powell's. We've also nominated pieces from Robert Vivian's Immortal Soft-Spoken—our first pocketbookand Donald E. Quist's For Other Ghosts, which is our second book from him and is a well-received short story collection.  

The chapbooks are available for purchase on our website and the books can be purchased on our site, via SPD, via Amazon, or via your local independent bookstore. Many thanks for supporting these incredible writers.
