In addition to the nominations sent in by independent publishers and literary magazines, Pushcart Press also considers works nominated by its own Board of Contributing Editors. For the third year in a row, the Pushcart Board has nominated two works from upstreet to be considered for inclusion in the next Pushcart Prize anthology, along with the six nominations made by our editors. They are a poem by Jeffrey Harrison, “Brief Note for April’s Departure,” and a short story by Xu Xi, “Anon.,” from upstreet number five.
It is a great compliment for upstreet to be singled out by this Board, which contains some very distinguished writers. Congratulations to both nominees, and best wishes to them in the competition.
