Pushcart Prize nominations were due December 1, and we got ours in just under the wire. From the many excellent pieces of writing that have passed through the Sunday Rumpus this year, we submitted four essays that we agreed were truly exceptional for consideration:

Forgiving My Father, the Serial Rapist, by Ibi Zoboi
The Displeasure of the Table, by Toni Nealie

Congratulations to these writers, and our sincere gratitude to all who have submitted their work for consideration in the past year.
