VoiceCatcher is a nonprofit community that "connects, inspires, and empowers women writers and artists" in the greater Portland/Vancouver area.

What is the Pushcart Prize? "The most honored literary project in America," says Bill Henderson, Pushcart's publisher/editor. Every year since 1976, Pushcart Press has chosen some of the best poetry, short stories, essays, and stand-alone excerpts from memoirs and novels to include in its annual anthology. All works selected for inclusion originally appeared in smaller literary magazines, journals, and book presses worldwide.

Congratulations to all of VoiceCatcher's Pushcart nominees! Awards will be announced in April 2014.
