Thoughts about The Pushcart Prize and being nominated.

 Honored that "How She Traded Up On Damnation" published in Tell-Tale Inklings was nominated by Mignon Ariel King for the Pushcart Prize. It is my tenth nomination but first since 2011.

What is The Pushcart Prize? Is it this?

The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series, published every year since 1976, is the most honored literary project in America.
Since 1976, hundreds of presses and thousands of writers of short stories, poetry and essays have been represented in our annual collections. Each year most of the writers and many of the presses are new to the series. Every volume contains an index of past selections, plus lists of outstanding presses with addresses.
The Pushcart Prize has been a labor of love and independent spirits since its founding. It is one of the last surviving literary co-ops from the 60's and 70's. Our legacy is assured by donations to our Fellowships endowment.

Or this link? Along the lines Matthew 22:14 comes Jon Fox: "For many are invited but few are chosen."
                                         An open later to Pushcart nominated folks. 

I think I fall somewhere HERE, is a post I found by E. Kristen Anderson which I agree with her right to celebrate the choice of your work by the editor who originally published you. Cheers, EKA.
