Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,600 editors.

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

A: Rarely. It's mostly a waste of time.

A: We've added stories we've published to things like the Canadian Aurora Awards and Nebula Awards reading lists, nominated for the Hugos, etc. In the case of Canada's Sunburst Awards, we've asked authors whether they prefer to submit themselves, or have us submit.

A: We intend to nominate for the Pushcart Prize, among others.

Robbin Farr and Judith Lagana, Founders and co-editors of River Heron Review, 14 September 2018

A: We had two pieces last year that were nominated for the Pushcart prize. We are working on expanding this.
