2016 Pushcart Prize Nominations
The following is a list of words, phrases, and ballyhooing the towering likes of Mary Karr, Charles Baxter, Publishers Weekly, New York Times, and more have used to describe the annual Pushcart Prize: “urgent and absolutely necessary,” “invaluable,” “powerhouse,” “distinguished,” “essential,” “the most creative, the most generous,” and “one of the very best things that could happen to a writer.”
Bearing those in mind, Noble / Gas Qtrly is pleased to announce its nominations for the 2016 Pushcart Prize:
- Dalton Day’s “A History of Gardening,” for its earnestness and saudade.
- Brent Rydin’s “A Question,” for its subtle, binding dread.
- Maribeth Theroux’s “The Toni Morrison invite in the pile of invites,” for the surety in its inextricable voice.
Congratulations! and thank you! for making this journal a standout.
