Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,700 editors.

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

A: We do not; however we encourage our published authors to do so.

William Gensburger, Editor and Publisher of Books 'N Pieces, 19 September 2019

A: No

A: We have occasionally, but not very often. This is something we are interested in doing more in future, however.

A: Communicators League is yet to do that. Since inception, we've only organised a writing contest of the flash fiction and poetry categories with prizes given to the first, second and third winners in each category.

A: Yes, we try to participate in as many awards as we are eligible for. Our most recent win was Jeannette Ng for the John W Campbell Award for Best New Writer (now named the Astounding Award).

A: We most certainly do. It's one of the benefits of our magazine. We want those we admire to be read by as many as possible. Nominations help the author, and shed light on the Blue Mountain Review. It is our responsibility to do all we can to sing praises of those we publish.

A: Occasionally. But maybe we'll do more of that in the future.

A: Yes.

A: Yes! We nominate for the Pushcart and Best of the Net, and may yet widen our pool of nominations.

A: Yes. We always submit to Pushcart and other major award competitions.

A: Yes. We have won state and national awards. One of our authors was a finalist for an international award.

A: Yes, we nominate work for the Pushcart award and Best of the Net, so far. One goal for this fall is to make a list of all the awards we're eligible for, and apply to them.
