It is truly a labor of love to publish our 2 issues per year, and to feature a different author, each month, on the Blue Heron Review site. Being able to provide space for so many wondrous voices is something I cherish. When the time comes to nominate poets for these annual awards, it is always difficult, because I am so proud of all of our contributors. Choosing just 6, is quite hard. Please know that I am honored to include the work of all of our poets here at Blue Heron Review.
Below are the nominations for Blue Heron Review for the 2018 Pushcart Prize. Congratulations and good luck to all of our nominees!
From the Winter 2018 BHR Issue 9:
Nancy Jean Larson / “Medicine Walk”
Anne Anthony / “She Wants”
Mary C. Rowin / “Centering”
From the Summer 2018 BHR Issue 10:
Stephanie K. Merrill / “The Tao of Remembrance”
Kirsty A. Niven / “Left of Windyghoul Road”
Susan Martell Huebner / “A Gathering”
