Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,675 editors.

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

A: No, we don’t.

Cyril Wong, Founding Editor of SOFTBLOW, 17 June 2019

A: Some times. It's best for authors to be up on these awards and willing to ask us.

A: We'll be nominating for Best Small Fiction, Best Microfiction and hopefully more.

A: No but the magazine did win a Gold for Electronic Publications in the 2019 COVR (Coalition of Visionary Resources) Awards

A: We have done so in the past, and we will probably continue to do so, yes.

A: Yes, we nominate for Pushcart, O.Henry and others. We just had a Witness story win the most recent O.Henrys, and Witness has had notable stories in the last several Best American Short Stories.

Wendy Wimmer, Fiction Editor of Witness, 04 June 2019

A: Not so far, but it is definitely something to consider.

Wayne-Daniel Berard, Co-Founding Editor of Soul-Lit, 03 June 2019

A: I have not and thank you for that idea.
Maybe I will start today.

A: Yes, we nominate for any relevant national and international awards.

A: I nominate works for the Pushcart Prize.

A: We will! Our first issue came out after the award deadlines, but we're looking forward to nominating our writers.

A: "Awards" primarily benefit the firm hosting those awards via submission fees so we do not participate in awards programs.
