We at Atticus have a proud five-year history of nominating writers for book and literary magazine awards, including The Pushcart Prize series. Our publishing house takes pride in making these selections as a tip of the cap to the fine writers who contribute to our publications.
Without further ado, here are the Atticus Review nominations for The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses XLI, to be published in late fall 2016. These writers best represent the diverse tastes of our editors and we trust that you will appreciate their work as much as we do.
Congratulations to these fantastic and feisty writers!
