“Sinkhole” has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize!

I learned last month, from editor Ryan Rivas, that someone from the distinguished Pushcart Board of Contributing Editors nominated my story, “Sinkhole,” from 15 Views of Miami for the Pushcart Prize.

A final decision should be made in early May.

Edited by Jaquira Diaz and published by Burrow Press, 15 Views of Miami is a literary portrait of the Magic City told in fifteen loosely linked stories by fifteen Miami authors. Sprawling from Hialeah to Homestead, from Wynwood to Stiltsville, these stories cover a range of cultures, languages and lives, reflecting the diversity and drama of a large and often misunderstood city.

“The Pushcart Prize editions are urgent and absolutely necessary.” — Mary Karr
