Some exciting news to share today, as my short story “The Missing” has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize!
The story was nominated by Mark Wisniewski, a contributing editor with the anthology series, and author of the novel Watch Me Go.
“The Missing” is featured in the current issue of The Southern Review. (Go here thesouthernreview.org/issues/detail/Autumn-2015/233/ and used the code FRIEND514 for a 25% discount off the cover price.) It was such a thrill to see my work in The Southern Review, which came out just last week, and to have “The Missing” get some love already is amazing. (Read more about the story here.)
This is my fifth nomination for a Pushcart. “Welcome Home” (originally published in Boulevard and anthologized in Best New American Voices 2009) was listed as a “Special Mention” story in the 2010 Pushcart anthology.
Here’s hoping that this is the year!
