>Writers have been hearing in recent weeks that their work has been selected for a Pushcart Prize. (Nominations were submitted by December 1, nominees notified in February, and selections were, apparently, in March and April.) We (the reading public) won’t know the full list until the anthology is released in October, but word is leaking out. Two that I’ve seen announced on various websites are good old Pinckney Benedict, for “Mercy” in Ontario Review (congrats Pinckney!), and Melanie Rae Thon for a story in Agni.
