We are very honored at Blue Heron Review to have the opportunity to nominate the work of our poets for the annual Pushcart Prize anthology. Selections were made from our 2 issues published during the 2017 calendar year. Having to choose only 6 poems is always a difficult decision, as we are so proud to feature the work of all of our contributors. Please join me in celebrating the nominations of the following Blue Heron poets listed below. To read each poem in full, simply click on the link to the issue in which their work appears and scroll down, or do a search and find (command/f) for their names. As always, all of our issues are available to read and enjoy online at any time, at no cost to our readers.

From Blue Heron Review Issue #7, Winter 2017
• Martie Odell Ingebretsen (“Night Window”)

From Blue Heron Review Issue #8, Summer 2017
