Pushcart Prize Nominations 2012


We are pleased to announce our Pushcart Prize nominations for 2012! We’re not exaggerating when we say we wish we could nominate all our contributors. A lot of tough decisions had to be made, because there was so much wonderful work to select from in issues #50 and the forthcoming #51. Below are the staff’s final selections. Winners of the Pushcart Prize are announced in April.

HFR PUSHCART PRIZE NOMINATIONS 2012:
“The Funfair” written and translated by Elena Alexieva (#51)

The Painter of Dreams” written by Tony Duvert, translated by S.C. Delaney and Agnès Potier (#50)

“Eden Underwater” by Judith Edelman (#51)

“So Happy” by Victoria Lancelotta (#50)

“Enkidu” by Nichita Stănescu, translated by Sean Cotter #(51)

“The Study Heads” by Emilia Phillips (#51)

We hope this will encourage you to return to issue #50 for some holiday reading, and we can’t wait to release issue #51 so you can lay your hands on these wonderful pieces!
