The works in the annual Pushcart Prize anthology are chosen not only from the six nominations allotted to each independent press and literary magazine, but also from nominations by Pushcart's Board of Contributing Editors, a group of 230 distinguished writers and editors. We have just been notified that this Board has nominated three pieces from upstreet number three for inclusion in the 33rd edition of the Pushcart anthology, which will be released in November. The nominated works are two poems by Karen Chase, "The Angel of Lost Things" (p. 22) and "Dusk in the South" (p. 23), and a short story by Lindsay Anne Sproul, "Chariot" (p. 83). We will be notified by May if any of upstreet's nine nominees are chosen for the anthology. Meanwhile, we congratulate Karen and Lindsay, and we are keeping our fingers crossed.
And, yes...we are very, very pleased at the literary community's continuing recognition of upstreet and its authors.
