Pushcart Nominees 2011!

Contributors, you did not make the selection process easy this year at all!

We decided to select 1 fiction, 1 non-fiction and 4 poems for our Pushcart nominees given that we publish a lot more poems than prose.

It was surprising to see an all female line up when the nominations were finally shaken out!

I also find it fitting that given how Referential Magazine works that some of these works refer to and from each other and that – somehow – they all speak to hunger/need.

Nicely done ladies. Nicely done.

And thanks, as always, to all of our contributors and readers for making picking “the best” very, very difficult 🙂
