Editor’s Book Award
In 1983, Pushcart Press inaugurated its Editors’ Book Award series to identify and publish manuscripts that are rejected by today’s bottom line, profit driven commercial presses. Each manuscript is nominated by an in-house editor who has seen his or her literary enthusiasms rejected by an employer. A complete list of Editors’ Book Award titles is available in the W.W. Norton catalog.
