Pushcart Prize Jentel Connection
The Pushcart Press and Jentel award residencies to writers and poets selected from the highly prized collection of the most distinguished short stories, essays, memoirs and poems selected from small presses nationwide.
The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series, published every year since 1976, is the most honored literary project in America. Each volume presents an astonishing diversity of writers, some renowned and many destined for acclamation. Selected from hundreds of little magazines and small book publishers nationwide, the Pushcart Prize continues its tradition of introducing to a wider public the literary galaxy of the small press by identifying and publishing manuscripts that are rejected by today’s bottom line, profit driven commercial presses. The annual Pushcart Prize continues to set the standard of excellence for literary anthologies.
