Happy Nomination, Sweet Sixteen

My newly birthed book, Spreading Like Wild Flowers ( PURCHASE IT HERE) was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by Big Table Publishing. It was nominated with these other fine people and books. Overall it's my sixteenth Pushcart nomination. A nomination, some might say, isn't a big deal.  In fact, John Fox says so. Well, I think it's an acknowledgment of all the work published by any given publisher, that out of everything they saw and reviewed this year, yours was one of their best. I still list it in bios (sorry John Fox), because, you know, sixteen nominations is good stuff. Thank you to Robin Stratton, Editor and CEO at Big Table. She's the absolute best!

Tina Barry for "Beautiful Raft"
Timothy Gager for "Spreading Like Wild Flowers"

Christopher Reilley for "One Night Stanzas"
Rob Dinsmoor for "Toxic Cookout"
Jon Sindell for "The Pugilist Poets of Venice."

Sweet 16
