Every year it is my honor and my chore to nominate stories and poems from Niteblade for The Pushcart Prize. It is my honor because it is truly a privilege and a joy to recognise some of the awesome works included in Niteblade’s pages and to shine a spotlight on the writers and poets who have created them. It is my chore because it truly is an immensely difficult task to pick only six pieces from everything we’ve published over the year. As difficult a task as it is, I have done it and I am proud to announce our Pushcart nominations as chosen by myself, Rhonda Parrish.
Niteblade nominees, for works published in 2011:
“Running Empty in a Land of Decay” by Damien Walters Grintalis (March 2011)
“First Loves For the First Time” by Keith Kennedy (March 2011)
“Maribelle Remembers Ice” by Brenda Stokes Barron (September 2011)
“A New Life” by F.J. Bergmann (December 2011)
“Initiation” by Caitlin Walsh (December 2011)
“a stitch in time” by Catherine Edmunds (December 2011)
Congratulations to all our nominees. We wish you the very best of luck.
