Prize Nomination

I was very happy to be told that I have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. This nomination is for a non-fiction article published in Longshot Island Magazine, ‘Brutalist Architecture‘. I am of course very proud that the magazine considered my article to be worthy of nomination, whether or not I am shortlisted for the prize.

This year (2018) we will nominate 5 works of fiction and one work of nonfiction for the Pushcart Prize.

Vacation by Daniel Wallace
The Part Beneath by Christine Rice
The Transcendent Cavewoman by Joe Taylor
The Food by Cameron Thomson
Born for Wonderland by Ewa Mazierska
Brutalist Architecture by Pete Johnson (nonfiction)

This is what the Pushcart Prize is all about.
The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series, published every year since 1976, is the most honored literary project in America.

Since 1976, hundreds of presses and thousands of writers of short stories, poetry and essays have been represented in our annual collections. Each year most of the writers and many of the presses are new to the series. Every volume contains an index of past selections, plus lists of outstanding presses with addresses.

The Pushcart Prize has been a labor of love and independent spirits since its founding. It is one of the last surviving literary co-ops from the 60’s and 70’s. Our legacy is assured by donations to our Fellowships endowment.

If any of you would like to submit a story or article for consideration for inclusion in Longshot Island Magazine, please use this link.

        1. I do have it saved, but I have an agreement not to show it on the blog, as this could potentially affect sales of the magazine. However, once the prize is over, I will contact Daniel and see if he minds me posting it. It is only a short (1-page) overview of Brutalist Architecture in London, so not very exciting. πŸ™‚
