I am thrilled to share that Cagibi nominated “My American Childhood in Reverse” for a Pushcart Prize!
Read the announcement here. I am unbelievably honored that it was nominated alongside such other wonderful poems and authors.
And this is what a Pushcart Prize is. I am not sure when they announce the winners… but send me good luck for this (difficult, terrifying, healing) poem (a sestina!) that I wrote in 2015–and that was rejected at 40 other journals before Cagibi accepted it for their wonderful journal–and then nominated for a Pushcart.
