Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 2,000 editors.

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

A: We nominate for the Pushcart Prize. Our latest nomination was James Harmon Clinton’s “My Second Mind”, published on our pages in 2021.

A: We have not to date (given that we were just born) but we plan to in the future.

A: Yes, we nominate for the Pushcart Prize.

A: Yes, if we feel like an award would be fitting for a piece we've published.

A: Yeah, we keep trying on that front but we're small fry and haven't had any luck in that area as yet.

James Bloom, Co-editor of Memoirist, 28 April 2022

A: No, but we can if requested by the author.

A: As a new publication, not yet. But no doubt we will do in future.

A: We've only just begun getting the hang of this in our second year. We did get some close call awards from Critters (2nd and 6th place in two categories) and had some stuff nominated for the Hugos and such, though those didn't pan out in any way. It's definitely something we're focusing on going forward.

A: We nominate for the Pushcart Award, O. Henry, Best of the Net, Sonder Press Best of Small Fictions, and Best American Short Stories.

A: I do not nominate. I do create annual special editions that consist of "best of" selections from a publishing year. Which reminds me, to do a best of the first five years version. Stay tuned. Drink up.

A: Currently no! But our journal is sponsored by both the Texas chapter of the College Reading and Learning Association and the Texas chapter of the National Organization for Student Success. Every fall those two organizations get together and host a statewide conference called CASP (College Academic Support Programs). It would be very interesting to have members of both organizations vote on what they believe is the best article of the year and give an award for that. Maybe for the future!

A: We'lll be doing so with relish.
