Pushcart Prize Nominations

2016_Cover_BigEvery year choosing which stories to nominate for the Pushcart Prize is difficult.

Difficult as it was, however, I have made my decisions and mailed the package today so they are final and official.

I am pleased to announce that on behalf of Niteblade Magazine I was proud to nominate the following poems and stories for The Pushcart Prize:

Congratulations nominees, and good luck!
