Pushcart Prize 2023 Nomination

In a shocking turn of literary events, the wonderful editors at Reckon Review nominated my essay “Ten Steps to Getting Rid of the Ghost in Your House” for a Pushcart. You can revisit this piece about my grief over my dad here.

If you are afraid that I am going to be insufferable over this unbelievable honor, you are absolutely correct. I am so happy and grateful. So proud my head is exploding. And my heart.

  1. Wowie zowie, Maureen… what a moving, heart-wrenching, stunning piece. I’m happy to read it again, and marvel over its detail and watch my own emotion rise through each of the steps, culminating in tears at #9 & 10. Brilliant, you, for this much deserved nomination!
