Barrelhouse #3 and a Pushcart nomination

So this is the big news...

Issue three of the Washington D.C.-based literary magazine BARRELHOUSE is out and features a 20-page story, "The Only Child", written by Erin Pringle and visually adapted by me (you can read the text online here). The piece has also been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, an award that sets the standard of excellence for small literary journals. The Pushcart is a pretty big thing in the literary world, and we're both floored just to be nominated.

You can hear an NPR interview with us on KUT (Austin TX) here.


BARRELHOUSE is a print journal featuring fiction, poetry, interviews, and essays about music, art, and the detritus of popular culture. You can purchase BARRELHOUSE via their site store.


The Pushcart Prize - Best of the Small Presses series, published every year since 1976, is the most honored literary project in America. Hundreds of presses and thousands of writers of short stories, poetry and essays have been represented in the pages of their annual collections.

I thought this might be the news -- can't wait to listen to the interview!

One correction: we're DC-based, not Baltimore-based...

Congratulations, that's fantastic!

Should you win, you can use the speech I prepared, should I be confronted with such a problem:

I've wanted more than anything to have your respect
