Default Pushcart

I got an email telling me that my poem 'Old Fools' which appeared in Shot Glass Journal #24 has been nominated for this, along with poems by these other guys. Yay!

The PUSHCART PRIZE: BEST OF THE SMALL PRESSES is an award winning series since 1976 that honors literature and poetry published in small presses during the year.
It is an honor for poets to be nominated for the annual collection, since they are representative of the most outstanding work a press has published over the course of a year. Every year small presses like Muse-Pie Press nominate poets and poems to The Pushcart Prize. Muse-Pie Press is proud and honored to have these six poets and their selected poems represent the kind of work Muse-Pie publishes in all of its formats.

Erik, Martin, Rick, Susan - thank you!

Jayne - yes, quite a week!

David - Facebook, yes? Well, might as well get as much glory in as possible before the inevitable news that I'm the bridesmaid and not the bride again haha.

Cheers all

Thanks Andrew (below)
