aaduna nominates six contributors for 2016 Pushcart Prize
2015 was a strong year for the journal as its contributors enticed and captivated readers in terms of imagery, story, focus, execution of ideas, and unique approaches to craft. We are pleased with all the poems and stories that grace our pages, and realize that the current nominees strongly represent our entire community of poets, writers , visual artists, readers, and supporters in a marvelous manner. We celebrate the nominees’ individual achievement as aaduna continues to embrace all contributors whose individual creativity enables us to produce a journal that is respected and valued in the world-wide community.
Rachael Ikins, whose fiction work is featured in aaduna's fall 2015 issue, was also nominated for the Pushcart Prize for her poem "April" by Penwomen Press. Congrats to Rachael!
