Pushcart nomination

Corvid Queen announced their Pushcart nominations today. I’m very pleased that my story “Changeling” is on the list. The other nominees are “Plucked” by Tara Calaby, “The Giving Limbs” by Briana Garelli, “Beauty Pretends to Get Lost in the Garden” by Quinn Lui, “In Which His Sea Bride Regrets” by Kim Welliver, and “The Magic in Her Bones” by Rin Willis.

For those previously unaware, the Pushcart Prize highlights work published by small presses and the Pushcart Press publishes an annual Best Of series that began in 1976. Editors nominate up to six pieces published during the calendar year. On the one hand, that means a lot of authors are nominated for the Pushcart Prize. One the other hand, it means an editor, after selecting pieces from the slush pile, chose the nominated pieces as their favorites from the winnowed pile. That sort of validation feels very nice.
