Hippocampus Magazine is pleased to announced our nominees for the next edition of Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses. Editors and publishers are invited to nominate up to six stories from the current calendar year. As you can imagine, this is a quite a feat.
As we reviewed our 2018 issues, some recurring themes emerged including identity, the idea of home, self-acceptance, and discovery. We feel the six pieces listed here are timely and relevant—and capture our motto of “memorable creative nonfiction” well.
- The Harvest of Bodies (Reema Zaman, Jan/Feb 2018)
- Hair(y) and Lovely, Sometimes (Suchita Chadha, May 2018)
- Dem Bones (Michael Sasun Shirzadian, June 2018)
- Age of Discovery (Matt W. Miller, Sept. 2018)
- Spiritual Affliction: A Thank You Note to Oklahoma (Kate Strum, Oct. 2018)
- The Cyclops Child (Linda Stead, Nov. 2018)
Congratulations to our six nominees; we wish you the best as the Pushcart judges read this year’s entries. Thank you once again for sharing your stories with us!
