Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,875 editors.

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

A: No.

Mark Reynolds, Editor of Bookanista, 03 March 2021

A: We intend to when the time comes.

Leann Denman, Editor-in-chief of BOMBFIRE, 02 March 2021

A: It depends on the work we've received. But generally, no.

A: No.

A: Yes.

Richard Eisenberg, Managing Editor of Next Avenue, 28 February 2021

A: Absolutely! We currently nominate for Pushcart and Best of the Net, and I'm in the process of compiling a full list of awards for writers and artists.

A: Yes - I nominate work featured in the magazine for a range of awards.

A: We nominate work for the Pushcart Prize.

A: I would love to nominate our work because it is the work of everyday moms that we publish. I would like more people to know about us and help us continue to grow.

Darlene Pistocchi, Editor-in-cheif of ScreaminMamas, 20 February 2021

A: Yes, several, all the usuals. Several review copies are sent to author as well so they can enter contests, etc. Like many other especially small (but large also) publishing houses, we have zero dollars for marketing, so the author needs to factor that in to their own after-publication duties.

A: Any of my contributors would fit the bill for an award. Each one was prudently selected by myself and a couple of staff volunteers coming from an MFA background. I highly recommend any of them, to be honest.

A: I make an effort to put our name forward to a few groups. There's enough competition that just putting our name out their seems fair.
