Pushcart Prize Nominations

It’s official.

Mouse Tales Press is sending out nominations for the 2013 Pushcart Prize. Its Best of the Small Presses series, published every year since 1976, is known as “the most honored literary project in America.”

The competition is fierce. Magazine and small book press editors (both print and online) may nominate up to six of “any combination of poetry, short stories, essays, or literary whatnot.”

We have been thinking hard about our decision, reading through all of the wonderful poems and short stories that appeared on our website in 2012.

Please stop by again after we finish our nomination process on November 15, at which time we will announce our nominees.

Thanks for your continued support of Mouse Tales Press.




  1. Sounds like quite a decision challenge. I know you're up for it!

  2. This has been very difficult. I am putting them in the mail today and will hopefully have my announcement post up in the next couple of days.
