Nominations for 2019 Pushcart Prize
At Inverted Syntax, we feel it is our responsibility to reward our contributors with recognition. This year, we are nominating for The Pushcart Prize, which welcomes up to six nominations (print or online) of both traditional and experimental writing from little magazines and small book press editors throughout the world. We love every piece we select for publication; thus, it has been difficult narrowing our nominations to six for the 2019 Pushcart Prize.
We realize that each Pushcart Prize edition features reprints only of work by about sixty authors selected from thousands of nominations; however, we feel no matter the outcome, it is our responsibility to give contributors the opportunity to have their work read by small press editors and Pushcart’s staff of distinguished contributing editors. That the Prize Committee has the opportunity to digest this vital work, we feel is just as equally important.
We are therefore delighted to nominate our contributors works for the Pushcart Prize, extending their audience, because we find them brilliant and necessary.
We wish our contributors the best of luck in the award process.
