Pushcart Prize Nominees

Sorry for the delay in the announcement. It was a tough choice, and after much careful deliberation, and anxiety, I've chosen the six nominees to represent (Short) Fiction Collective in the upcoming annual Pushcart Prizes. The nominations were signed, sealed and delivered just in time. Got it postmarked on the final day of the deadline! To those that didn't get the nod, don't feel too bad, we loved them all but it was just a numbers game really.

The following are the nominees:

"when i was still young, and when you still weren't, and our father was already dead" by xTx
"Courtship: Five Micros" by Sheldon Lee Compton
"You Should Have Built Tall, You Should Have Built Wide" by Jenny Holden
"Quitting Is Easy" by Nathaniel Tower
"untitled" by Evan Swenson
"Me and Jack" by Sarah Leslie

You can read their entire stories by checking out our archives on the right hand side of the page. Once again congrats to those selected and here's hoping for inclusion in the anthology!


  1. I am in love with the fact that you are calling it the puschart prize.

    I hope they do indeed create such a chart.

  2. that'd be a hell of a chart! thanks for the spell check, taken care of.
