Poet Alice Shapiro Nominated for Pushcart

Friend and poet, Alice Shapiro has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Instead of waiting patiently, this creative lady built a project on her website, which includes other Pushcart nominees. The project, "The Change Interviews", features an audio segment for each nominee and a link to their website. And, if you prefer to read each poem yourself, there's also a link to the featured poem. What a wonderful idea and what a treat to hear each poet read his or her poem!

This is Alice's poem.

The Change Interviews project is also featured on the Library of Congress website, where you can explore other audio projects.
Alice is also nominated for a GAYA prize, "...the oldest literary awards in the Southeastern United States...The GAYA honors both independently published authors, those whose books are published by traditional publishing houses."
Our Ms. Shapiro is quite busy, yes, but not too busy to be finishing up her second book of poetry, so keep an eye out for that release. Alice's work has only improved, and her poems offer a musical treat to the ears. You may follow Alice via or
