OUR PUSHCART PRIZE NOMINATIONS
All Hail Pushcart! Yes, we’re one of the many small literary outfits who applaud the Pushcart Prize collections– though we have reservations. To discover what they are, and at the same time find out which works we nominated for the annual awards this year, read this.
Have we missed the boat this year with our picks? Are we all wet? Living in Fantasyland? Let us know!
This week we’ve also kicked off a can’t miss Cat Poetry Festival at our Fun Pop Poetry feature, here.
The long and lazy summer! A time for reflection– for memories of childhood, of the old homestead, days past. Simpler times. The friends you had. The girl you knew.

(REMINDER: Our Fun Pop Poetry feature is underway at our New Pop Lit Interactive blog. We need fun poems!)
