I’m delighted to announce that Creative Nonfiction has nominated my essay, “The Butterfly Effect,” for a Pushcart Prize. Described as “the most honored literary project in America,” the Pushcart recognizes the best of the small presses. Since its inception in 1976, winners have been published in an annual anthology. This year’s winners will be announced in the spring.
“The Butterfly Effect” tells the intertwined stories of the decline of the monarch butterflies and my struggles traveling-with multiple chemical sensitivity-to find them at one of their historic roosts.
