The Pushcart Prize is a literary award specifically open to small presses around the country that honors the best “poetry, short fiction, essays, and literary whatnot” (as their website terms it) published each year. Anthologies of the winning pieces are published each year by Pushcart Press and 2016 marks the prize’s 40th anniversary.
