Nominations for the 2020 Pushcart Prize
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 the Pushcart Prize anthology features work by many winners and finalist, however, we feel no matter the outcome, it is our responsibility to give our contributors the opportunity to have their work read by a wider audience, including the judges and editors of the anthology.
We are therefore delighted to nominate our contributors works for the Pushcart Prize, extending their audience, because we find their work brilliant and necessary.
The selected works appeared in Inverted Syntax Volume 2: Issue 1 | January 2019
