The Ekphrastic Review's Pushcart Nominations
The Ekphrastic Review is delighted to present our first ever nominations for the Pushcart Prize. The annual Pushcart anthology is a longstanding literary tradition honouring the small press.
This year, The Ekphrastic Review formed a prize nomination committee so that we can begin celebrating the incredible talent of our writers through nominations for Best of the Net, the Pushcart, and coming soon, our very own Ekphrastic Review recognition of excellence.
Thank you to the prize nominating committee for your commitment, your generous donation of time, your insights, and the gift you give to your fellow poets: Laura Cherry, Kari Ann Ebert, Carole Mertz, Alarie Tennille, and Jordan Trethewey.
Here are the nominations:
do not speak to me of pain, by Ali Whitelock
Louisiana Zombie Afternoon, by Kyle Laws
Vanessa Bell is Sending Me Dreams, by Patricia Goodwin
Fauves of Luxury, Calm, and Desire, by Janiru Liyanage
Pair of Cranes, by Deborah Schmidt
Corollary, by Rajani Radhakrishnan
Congratulations to our Pushcart nominees!
Just a note that in 2017, Jo Balistreri was nominated for a Pushcart by the Pushcart team of editors! She was The Ekphrastic Review's first Pushcart nominee at a time we were not yet able to nominate for prizes.
