About the Pushcart Prize:
Since 1976, the Pushcart Prize has honored (and collected) wonderful new work written in (or translated to) English. Editors from around the world are invited to nominate six of their strongest pieces published in the current year, whether poetry, short stories, essays, memoirs, or stand-alone excerpts from novels, to be featured in its yearly collection.
