Recent Award Nominations for our Authors

It’s nomination time again! We recently sent out nods for the annual Queens Ferry Press Best Small Fictions anthology. We also nominated for the Eric Hoffer Award and the Independent Publisher Book Awards.

The nomination process is always difficult — we published so many amazing pieces in 2016 — but eventually we narrowed it down. We’re pleased to share our picks for this year, and we hope you’ll reread a few of these favorites (and check out other work from these authors).

Ashley Hutson’s “Hen of God” highlighted at Ploughshares blog

Ashley Hutson’s flash fiction, “Hen of God,” was selected by Ross McMeekin for the ongoing Plougshares column “The Best Short Story I Read in a Lit Mag This Week.” In the blog post, Ross deconstructs Ashley’s piece and talks about the role of ritual throughout “Hen of God.” It’s a thoughtful examination and celebration of Ashley’s story, and we’re glad to see this piece highlighted and discussed over at Ploughshares.
