YARN is very proud to nominate 6 works from 2015 for the Pushcart Prize Anthology. The Pushcarts are a prestigious collection of works from small literary presses, and it’s published annually. Major writers like Joyce Carol Oates, Anthony Doerr, and Zadie Smith have been selected (and that was just last year!!), though to the best of our knowledge, no YA work has yet been selected–and YARN certainly hopes to be the first to shatter that glass ceiling!
As usual, it was very tough to select just 6 works to send. After much nail biting and discussion, here were this year’s pieces. CONGRATS to the nominees!
- “We Never Get to Talk Anymore” by Elizabeth Naranjo
- “Past the Honeysuckle” by Brandon Patterson
- “The Foxes” by Maria Iida
