The Rankings are coming, The Rankings are coming!

pushcart2017This weekend I am putting together the 2017 Perpetual Folly Literary Magazine Rankings, based on the Pushcart Prize. All three lists–for Fiction, Poetry, and Creative Nonfiction–should be available by Sunday evening, November 13.

This year, as I’ll explain more fully when I post the lists, I have tweaked the formula by which the rankings are determined so that prizes and special mentions received during the last five years are given more weight than prizes received in the prior five years, a change that gives newer magazines something of a leg up. Other than that, the only thing I’ll reveal today is that there is a tie at the top of the Fiction list!
