Chill Subs Menu of Pushcart Nom Noms (30 lit mags that nominate)

Hungry for some nom noms? Maybe you’ve woken up in the middle of the night with some tummy grumblies and decided that a little bit of Pushcart would hit the spot. So you wander over to the newly opened Chill Subs to see what they’ve got cookin’.

Welcome! Soon, we will be adding nominations to all literary magazines listings in our database. For now, we’ve put together this little tasting menu of literary magazines who nominate for Pushcart Prizes (and many also nominate for Best of the Net, Wigleaf, and more).
