pushcart 2018 nomination

Galveston, Puschart Prize, Texas, Uncategorized

The good poetry folks at The Museum of Americana emailed to say they chose “Ferry Boat Line, Bolivar” as a Pushcart Prize nominee for the 2018 anthology. What a thrill. I’m feeling giddy about it and plan on spreading the love all around my house and neighborhood all weekend. Keep writing poetry, friends. In fact, submit it to The Museum as their reading period is open until December 31.

You can read more about the Bolivar Peninsula of Texas and the free ferry boat ride that takes people and automobiles back and forth to the island of Galveston on their Twitter feed. The beach house referenced in this poem, as well as most every other beach house on the peninsula, was sadly washed away in Hurricane Ike on September 12, 2008. Bolivar is no stranger to hurricanes.
