Spirit Fire Review is pleased to announce our nominations for the Pushcart Prize awards for work appearing in our magazine in 2016. Congratulations to the nominees, and thank you to our amazing team of editors Cindy Bousquet Harris, Elizabeth Brooks, and Janine Pickett.
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.
