After careful consideration, we are so excited to announce our 2019 Pushcart Prize Nominations, 2019 Best Small Fictions Nominations, and 2018 Best Microfiction Nominations. We love everything we publish, but these stories, poems, and essays have a special place in our hearts. We wish the very best of luck to each nominee!

Happy Halloween, and enjoy the reads!
