Just heard from founders and editors Rudri Bhatt Patel and Beth Burrell of THE SUNLIGHT PRESS that they are nominating my flash essay "Dear Maddy" for a Pushcart Prize. It's an essay that means a lot to me and I'm honored by the recognition. At least two of the other nominees are writers whose work I follow regularly (Sabrina Hicks and C.C. Russell). Congratulations and best of luck to all of the nominees.
