Pushcart Prize Nominee

I’ve been notified by St. Somewhere Journal that they’ve nominated my poem “Ten O’Clock“, which was published in the February issue of the journal, for a Pushcart Prize. To say I am honored and surprised to be nominated is putting it mildly!

St. Somewhere Journal is an online literary journal with a focus on the Caribbean region and surrounding areas, such as the Coastal South of the United States. Our primary mission is to present works from, about or inspired by the Caribbean. Our secondary mission is to present works related to the areas surrounding the Caribbean, in an effort to compare and contrast those underappreciated elements of shared history and culture that exist between both people and places.

Other nominees from St. Somewhere include

“The Day the Wind Stopped Blowing” – A short story by Patty Somlo.

“Canefields We Too Forget” – A poem by Summer Edward

“Wild Craboo” – A poem by Andre Marsden

“Resemblance” – A short story by Danielle Boodoo-Fortune’

“The Suffocated Terrace” – A poem by Sergio Ortiz

Best of luck to us all!
