Crisis Chronicles Press has had the honor of publishing many excellent books by very talented poets this year. Alas, the Pushcart people only allow us to make six nominations. I would have preferred to have chosen twenty, as there were so many worthy candidates. But after some lengthy and very difficult deliberations, I finally narrowed down the field and submitted the following Pushcart Prize nominations:
by Kari Gunter-Seymour — from Serving (March 2018)
by Steven B. Smith — from Where Never Was Already Is (April 2018)
"William Randolph Hearst, Diving Alone, San Simeon"
by Christine Howey — from Citizen of Metropolis (August 2018)
by Rikki Santer — from Dodge, Tuck, Roll (September 2018)
"assembly line doll head roach motel"
by Juliet Cook — from Malformed Confetti (October 2018)
"Questions for Google Home"
by Chris Stroffolino — from Drinking From What I Once Wore: Selected and Recent Poems (December 2018)
Best of luck to all of you!
