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!
