We are so proud to nominate six collaborations (how can we choose just six?!) published by Broadsided Press for the annual Pushcart Prizes. We’re not sure what this venerable literary anthology will do with our collaborative approach and innovative publishing vision, but we hope they will agree with us that these broadsides are vital and deserving of high praise.
Choosing is difficult, because we fall in love with everything we publish, and we are very selective. The editors went back over the broadsides from the past twelve months to see what, now, at this very moment, resonates most vividly.
Now, we are proud to announce the Broadsided Press 2022 Pushcart Prize nominees!
