Congrats to Brandon R. Schrand, whose essay “On Failure” received an honorable mention in the 2010 Pushcart Prize anthology. Read his essay here.
Since 1976, the Pushcart Prize anthology has been published from an 8' x 8' backyard shack on Long Island, NJ. This honored literary project collects the best of the year’s writing from small presses and literary journals. We are pleased to have one of our writers, published from equally humble origins—a laptop on an editor’s kitchen table—recognized by this prestigious press.
Each year Blood Orange Review nominates writers from the previous year’s issue for anthologies and prizes, such as the Pushcart. It’s our way of continuing to support those who believe in us enough to send their best work our way.
