    *Voting is now closed. 


    Cha co-editors Tammy Ho & Jeff Zroback will nominate the following poems for the Pushcart Prize 2010. There is one more slot: we have several pieces in mind but would love to know your thoughts. Which piece from issue 10, issue 11 and issue 12 of the journal do you recommend?

    Leave us a comment below or send your suggestions to editorsATasianchaDOTcom (Subject line: “Pushcart”) if you prefer anonymity. If possible, please explain briefly why you liked a particular piece. We will consider your input when deciding the sixth nominee. We intend to post the nominations 1st November 2010.

    Last year, we faced the same problem and in the end only nominated five poems (see the nominees here). You can help us this time.
    Congratulations to all the nominees. We wish you the best of luck and thank you for letting us publish your wonderful work.
