Pushcart Nominations for CT2!

Date: October 21, 2016
Though we are knee-deep in submissions for issue 3, we have taken a brief break from reading new work to decide which six pieces from issue 2 to nominate for 2017 Pushcart Prizes. The nomination period runs each year from October 1 through December 1.


And here are the five poems and one short story that we have nominated for the 2017 Pushcart Prizes:  

  • Child of the Desolate, by Claudia Emerson
  • White Out, by sam sax
  • Hatchet, by Roy Kesey
  • MEMORANDUM: To Eustratius of Alexandria, regarding Enhanced Interrogation Technique Subcategory B, “The Inducement of Shame and Elimination of Bodily Sovereignty Via Forced Prostitution and Other Mechanisms,” by Sara Biggs Chaney
  • from Letters to Mao (Dear Mao, / Even the island is not really an island…), by Jennifer S. Cheng
  • Letter to the Republic, by Matthew Olzmann


Congratulations to our issue 2 nominees! We wish you the best of luck!


Brief note in service of transparency: Roy Kesey served as contributing editor for issues 1 & 2, and recently joined the staff as Fiction Editor (starting his tenure with issue 3). The selection of prize nominees is handled exclusively by the Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor.
