In a week that needs a little bit of joy, we’re happy to be able to share some good news. We’re so proud to announce The Mondegreen’s nominations for the 2016 Pushcart Prize:


“Meat” by Eric Nguyen

“Santa Lucia” by Emily Glossner Johnson


“Newman OS” by Ricky Garni

“Sometimes When I Am Listening to Count Basie” by Dante Di Stefano

“Every Coffin is a Soapbox Derby Racer” by Derrick C. Brown

Rereading all of these pieces today as I was putting this post together lifted some of the pressure that’s been in my chest for the past few days, so I want to thank all of you wonderful people for sharing your work with us. Congratulations on your nominations, and please keep putting art and beauty into the world.
