Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,550 editors.

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

A: Yes. We go to bat for our writers on social media as well. We also have internal awards, such as the Red Lobster Prize, an editors' choice for the best piece in a given issue.

A: not at this time

Christine Jones, editor-in-chief, founder of poems2go, 14 April 2018

A: We regularly nominate for the Pushcart Prize, Sundress Press's Best of the Net anthology, the Bettering American Poetry anthology, and the Rhysling award. We think that award nominations are a win/win for any small press - it lets authors know that we recognize the outstanding quality of their work, and anytime one of our authors wins, it reflects well on us as a press. Any small press that doesn't nominate is doing their authors a disservice.

A: We do! We currently nominate for Bettering American Poetry, the Pushcart, Best of the Net, the Saboteur Awards, Firecracker Awards, Best Small Fictions, and several more specific awards and anthologies.

Sarah Clark, Managing Editor of Anomaly, 07 April 2018

A: We nominate work for the Best of the Net.
