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

A: Pushcart Prizes, PEN awards where appropriate.

Philip Memmer, Executive Editor of Stone Canoe, 13 August 2020

A: Currently, we nominate for Best of the Net and Best Small Fictions.

J. Edward Kruft, Editor-at-large of trampset, 09 August 2020

A: We have nominated works for the Pushcart Prize and The Best Small Fictions Anthology.

A: Yes, we nominate work for Pushcart Prizes and Best New Poets, and we have our own Spring contests every year, each with a cash prize of $500.

Melissa Wade, Editor-in-chief of phoebe, 07 August 2020

A: Not yet, but I plan to!

A: No, not at this time.

A: We are just beginning to dip our feet into the award realm. We want to give our authors as much exposure as possible and awards are a fantastic way to do that, but we also don't want to be known for catering solely to prestige. We care about fostering a strong writing scene in our home institution and amongst undergraduate universities first and foremost--the awards and monetary considerations come secondary.

A: yes

A: no

A: Yes! I nominate work for awards, reprints, and other special events regularly.

Diana Smith Bolton, Founding Editor of District Lit, 26 July 2020

A: Yes, especially for the Pushcart.

A: no. But the work we publish is eligible for additional exposure in The Write City Review, an anthology of both poetry, short pieces, and artwork that we publish in printed form on an annual basis.
