aaduna announces its 2013 Pushcart Prize Nominees


The Background:


"The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series, published every year since 1976 is the most honored literary project in America.  The prize was named among the most influential projects in the history of American publishing by Publishers Weekly.


Since 1976, hundreds of presses and thousands of writers of short stories, poetry and essays have been represented in the annual collections.
