Pushcart Board nominates
four upstreet works

In addition to the nominations sent in by independent publishers and literary magazines, Pushcart Press also considers work nominated by its own Board of Contributing Editors. For the fourth year in a row, the Pushcart Board has nominated work from upstreet to be considered for inclusion in the next Pushcart Prize anthology, along with the six nominations made by our editors. The nominated works from upstreet number six are a poem by Karen Chase, "Leaving Home," a short story by Erik Wennermark, "The True Story of Yu Tien," and two essays, "That Furrowed Brow," by Andrew D. Cohen, and "The Barest Shapes of Light," by Nina Feng. It is a great compliment for upstreet to be singled out by this Board, which contains many distinguished writers. Congratulations to all four nominees, and best wishes to them in the competition.
