Each year, “The Pushcart Prize – Best of the Small Presses” is published to recognize writers whose short stories, poetry and essays have been sent out into the world that year. Writers who were first noticed in the series include Raymond Carver, Andre Dubus, Susan Minot and John Irving. For the second time, we’re nominating some of the works published in Deep South for the prize. We have to mail in up to six nominations by December 2, so please help us narrow down the Southern works that have appeared in our pages this past year by voting below. The six works that receive the most votes will be sent to Pushcart Press for consideration for the prize.
Voting is open through November 30!

This poll is now closed. Thanks to everyone who voted.
