The Pushcart Prize

I was delighted and not a little surprised to be informed, earlier this week, that my poem Stanislav Petrov is one of Umbrella's six Pushcart Prize nominations for this year.

I'm not entirely sure what the process is from here on in - I assume the Pushcart editors narrow the field down to a final selection, but I'm over the moon just to have got a nomination.

Thanks LouAnn. I'm over the moon - just looking at some of the names who have appeared in there is humbling.

What a well deserved honour, Matt. Most exciting. I have just read the text of your poignant and evocative poem.
