you will never guess what was waiting for me, an email from Sibling Rivalry Press’s head honcho, Bryan Borland. Bryan sent this email to inform myself and the others mentioned, that we had been nominated for a Pushcart prize by Sibling Rivalry Press. Yep, I’m shocked. Yep, I’m blown away. Yep, I’m feeling incredibly honoured. Now, for the complete list of nominees and the work for which they/we have been nominated:
* I would like to add one last thing. The poem “Billie” for which I was nominated is dear to my heart because the young man who was the subject of the work was a very special friend to me when I was younger. Thank you Bryan, on behalf of both Billie and me, for keeping his memory alive on paper and in the minds of those who read about him.
