Kathleen Buckley’s short story, Reading Amelia Gray on the Train, has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize by Paper Darts Magazine.


Literary Reflections and Senior Editor Andrea Lani was thrilled to be nominated for a Pushcart Prize for "The Sparrow's Song," an essay about a songbird and those foggy early days of motherhood, which appeared in The Sunlight Press in July. She had another essay, "Memento Vivere," which is about impermanence, growing children, and the artist Andy Goldsworthy, published the Winter 2018 issue of Still Point Arts Quarterly.


Rudri Bhatt Patel published the essay, "This Diwali, I am reassessing my faith in Hinduism and what I want to teach my daughter about religion," in The Washington Post. She also published the essay, "Embracing Diwali as an Indian-American," in Grok Nation.


Colleen Kearney Rich had a piece of flash fiction, Eye of Horus, published in matchbook in November.


Jamie Sumner’s essay about doing crossword puzzles in the intensive care with her son appeared in the New York Times. She also recently signed a two-book deal with Atheneum Books for Young Readers (Simon & Schuster) for her second and third middle-grade novels.
