Pushcart Nominations 2011

We are very happy to announce our Pushcart nominees of 2011:

Issue Two:

>We Are Family by Simone Martel

Issue Three:

>Relative Weights and Measures by Bruce Boston
>In Defiance of Sleek-Armed Androids by Lisa M. Bradley
>Green Rushes by J.S. Watts
>First Born by Samantha Kymmell-Harvey
>First National Forum on the Position of Minorities in Malaysia by Zen Cho

While picking out these works, we were again confronted with why it sucks being an editor: you have to choose. We chose the pieces that we thought might stand the best chance in winning, we did not pick favorites here. What I'm trying to say is we love the work of all our authors--we wouldn't have accepted it if we didn't. We are sorry that we could pick only six pieces, but we hope that all the other authors can keep their fingers crossed for their ToC mates. Thanks everyone!
