Katie McEachern, 1st Place Winner of 2018 Dandelion Cottage Award


Big congratulations to our UPPAA members who were nominated for the 44th Annual Pushcart Prize for their work in U.P. Reader #2. This is the only award that honors the best of American small presses each year with  an anthology that spans our great country.

  • Leslie Askwith for the personal essay “A Geology Geeks Finds God”
  • Katie McEachern for the short story “The Attack”

Katie is from Negaunee High School and was the first place winner in UPPAA’s Dandelion Cottage Short Story Contest. She received $250. For rules see DandelionCottage.org
Pushcart winners will be announced in April 2019 at the time of the release of next year’s anthology, however being nominated is an honor in itself that many writers treasure.
