Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 2,125 editors.

Q: Do you nominate work you've published for any national or international awards?

A: Absolutely! We take every opportunity--O. Henry, Pushcart, Best of, and more!

A: Yes, we do! In our contract we note how much we will spend in award submission fees (it’s around $100). We believe in supporting our books as much as we can.

A: Not yet, but we hope to very soon! We are still improving our marketing presence and plans. As we grow and get better, we hope to find a lot of rare opportunities for our writers and methodically take up every chance that we can get.

A: Every single book we publish is given a budget for awards. Unless an author explicitly requests that budget be spent on local or regional awards some or all of that budget goes to international and national awards.

A: Yes! We nominate each book to around a dozen awards, including the Housatonic Award, the Levis Reading Prize, the GLCA New Writers Award, the Griffin Poetry Prize, and more.

A: Yes, we nominate for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, and Best New Poets.

A: We plan to do that starting now.

A: We publish the 1st place winners of the Society for Humanistic Anthropology's annual prizes for creative ethnographic prose and poetry. Second and third prize winners are invited to submit through our peer review process.

A: So far have not.

A: No

A: Yes! We nominate for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.

A: Yes! We currently nominate for The Pushcart Prizes and Best of the Net.
