Congratulations Ann Walters, Pushcart Prize Nominee!

I got a very exciting email yesterday from Sharon, who writes under the pen name, Ann Walters, that her work has been nominated by the Ballard Street Poetry Journal for the Pushcart Prize.  This is a highly coveted award among writers; I would compare it to an actor being nominated for the Emmys.  Super cool. 

You can view my previous write-up about the nominated piece here (a poem called After Three Hours of Screening Dirt at Heshotauthla), visit her blog, called Field Notes, or  view more of her work at The Adroitly Placed Word, the site from which the following stanza was taken (part of the poem called More Than the Sum):

“I am grit
in the rattling red bed
of a dusty pickup truck.”
