I just discovered that a series of three wee poems of mine, published in the Twitter magazine unFold, have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. It would tickle me to win on the basis of 140 characters each (actually, mine are mostly less than half that long), especially since my most “famous” poem is the one-line poem entitled “Artichoke“.
Thanks to poet Rose Auslander, editor of unFold, and Jessica Graustein, editor-in-chief of Folded Word, (which publishes unFold and a wide range of print books, chapbooks, and anthologies) for their support!
