As Booklist's Donna Seaman commented on edition #43, a harvesting of the year's finest stories, poems and essays...a deeply provocative and artistically resplendent anthology. This current edition is further proof that important and exciting writing is found in small presses scattered around the country and the world.

As the variety of selections in Pushcart Prize XLIV indicates, it is an eclectic and constantly changing community. Over 70 authors are included from more than 50 presses.

The Pushcart series is winner of The Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award from The National Book Critics Circle, and the Poets & Writers/Barnes & Nobel Writers For Writers citation, plus many other awards.
