The PUSHCART PRIZE: BEST OF THE SMALL PRESSES is an award winning series in its 35th year of publication. It is an honor for poets to be nominated for the annual collection, since they are representative of the most outstanding work a press has published over the course of a year. Muse-Pie Press is proud and honored to have these four poets represent the kind of work Muse-Pie publishes in all of its formats (The Fib Review online journal, Featured Poet page online, chapbooks, and book publications).
