Virgogray Press Pushcart Prize Nominees

It is again that time of year when independent publishers all around submit their nominees for next year’s Puschart Prize Best of the Small Presses anthology. This year we had a plethora to choose from, including Carcinogenic Poetry, Nothing. No One. Nowhere., the individual  collections, The VGP Literate, and the Occupy Poetry Project. There were many factors we looked at, and to be fair, we would nominate so much more were we able to.
