It’s been a big year for Revolution House, and things are about to get bigger. Not only are we busily prepping our third issue, but we’re also pleased to announce that we have selected the following six authors from our first two issues as nominees for the 2011 Pushcart Prize:
- Amorak Huey, “The Sword Swallower Wonders What’s the Point”
- William Henderson, “Mon Coeur”
- Kea Marie, “Fatherhood”
- Jen Marquardt, “Conjoined”
- Sarah V. Schweig, From “Addenda”
- Ashley Wakefield, “The Elephant Graveyard”
Since our inception, we have been blessed with a bounty of wonderful work. We are honored to have been able to provide these pieces with a home. Our selection process was difficult; we wanted to nominate everything, because we love everything we’ve published. We come back to them; we reread, we revisit, and we find ourselves, in talking over the new work that crosses our virtual desks, discussing the work that has come before. It sticks with us, but these six have stuck the most firmly. Read them. Read them all. We think they’ll stick with you, too.
See you in a few weeks, RevHouse fans. We’ll be rounding out our first year with a bang.
