Category: Accolades

Leslie Johnson, part-time instructor in the Hillyer College Department of English, had her story “Midterm” published in the 2017 Pushcart Prize anthology. She has just received a new honor: The story has been selected for an anthology of “best of Pushcart” stories, Love Stories for Turbulent Times, to appear in December:  “Selected from hundreds of Pushcart Prize winners, twenty-five brilliant writers - including Charles Baxter, Karen Russell, Charles Johnson, and Donald Hall - tell their contemporary love tales, both fiction and nonfiction, in often unsparing ways. In some there is a joyous celebration of love, in others the game is perplexing, but always fascinating.”
