• Aamina Ahmad Wins a Pushcart Prize (2020.05.18)
  • Dear Friends:

    We're delighted to share a recent bit of great news: Aamina Ahmad has won a Pushcart Prize for her short story, "The Red One Who Rocks". As you know, the Pushcart Prize honors the best poetry, short fiction, and essays that have been published in the small presses over the previous year. Originally published in the literary magazine One Story, Aamina's short story will now be featured in the PUSHCART PRIZE: BEST OF SMALL PRESSES 2021 anthology. Aamina is also a Rona Jaffe Award winner and a former Stegner Fellow. It's so exciting to see more and more people fall in love with her brilliant writing and give it the attention it deserves-- either in the form of a Pushcart Prize or the wonderful interest that has accumulated around THE WALLED CITY.
