Award-Winning WritersJanuary 15, 2019
The Pushcart Prize is awarded annually to the “best of the small presses.” In 2018 three writers won Pushcarts for work that appeared in The Sun:
- Heather Sellers for her essay “Pedal, Pedal, Pedal” [January 2017]
- Poe Ballantine for his essay “Secrets Deep in Tiger Forests” [March 2017]
- Tony Hoagland for his poem “Into the Mystery” [August 2017]
Their works appeared in the Pushcart Prize XLIII anthology.
Jane Bernstein’s essay “Still Running” [February 2017] and Heather Sellers’s “Pedal, Pedal, Pedal” [January 2017] were selected for the 2018 Best American Sports Writing anthology. (This is the second time we’ve been included in the anthology. You can read the first Sun essay to win this award here.)
Essays from The Sun by Brian Doyle, Eaton Hamilton, Benjamin Hertwig, Frances Lefkowitz, Colleen Mayo, Eva Saulitis, Corvin Thomas, Debbie Urbanski, Yael van der Wouden, and Saint James Harris Wood were listed as notable or special mentions in the 2018 Best American Science and Nature Writing, Best American Essays, Best American Sports Writing, and Pushcart Prize XLIII anthologies.
