Considered one of the most honored literary projects in America, The Pushcart Prize has published an anthology of award-winning fiction every year since 1976.
This year, the staff of Vine Leaves Literary Journal are pleased to nominate six outstanding literary pieces, carefully (and sometimes painfully) selected from our database of talented authors over the past publication year.
Meaghan Ryan Coates (previously published as Megathy Ryan)— When Love Is Too Big
Olivia Stearn — Bug
Brandyn Johnson — Express Lane
Leila A Fortier — The Womb
Daniel Thompson — Under You Over The Bridge
Sarah Read — Grave Mother
