Blue Lobster Book Co. is proud to announce its nominees for the upcoming Pushcart Prize. The Pushcart Prize is one of the most coveted honors in literary publishing, and it all starts with a piece of short writing submitted to a magazine, website, or book, like one of ours.
The winning stories are published in an annual Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses collection; the 2016 edition will include this year’s winners and a list of all presses and magazines that provided nominations. The collection, which has been published every year since 1976, features stories, essays, poetry, novel excerpts, and more.
