Catherine Jagoe, whose wonderful piece, “A Ring of Bells,” won the Council for Wisconsin Writers’ Kay W. Levin Award for Short Nonfiction also received a prestigious Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses. Jagoe, a writer and translator who lives in Madison, has an impressive list of writing credits, which can be viewed on her website.
Here is the Pushcart’s notice about Jagoe’s award:
“A Ring of Bells,” which appeared in The Gettysburg Review issue 27:2 (summer 2014), has been awarded a Pushcart Prize and will be reprinted this coming November in the Pushcart Prize XL edition of that anthology.
Here’s what CWW board member and poet extraordinaire Karla Huston said about Jagoe’s prize: “Pushcart receives thousands of submissions each year and to be nominated is an honor but to WIN a Pushcart Prize is huge.”
A double congratulations to this gifted Wisconsin writer!
