Manna in the Morning reviewed at Cultural Daily

"Manna in the Morning  is a collection to cherish and to gift. Jules’s poems are readable and profound. As Jules ponders Leviticus 20:26 in “You Shall Be Holy,” she writes, “‘Shall’ to be understood / as a command, not suggestion” (52). These poems are Shalls. They proclaim our connection to what has come before, rooting us in tradition, while simultaneously gathering up possibility and meaning for us to exult in, commanding us to flourish outward. They are the saplings that are planted for a future harvest, but they are also the harvest." Read full review by Alexandra Umlas  here. 

"My Happy Place" Nominated for 2021 Pushcart Prize

  Lowestoft Chronicle’s 2021 Pushcart Prize Nominations December 4, 2021 We are very appreciative of the great writers who have graced our pages over the years. In 2010, we published a couple of works by Hugh Bernard Fox Jr., one of the founders of the  Pushcart Prize , who sadly passed away in 2011. Hugh was an admirer of  Lowestoft Chronicle  and a prolific literary writer of quality poetry and prose, with a remarkable catalog of publications to his name. One of the finest pieces we have published in recent years was the poignant story, “Mr. O’Brien’s Last Soliloquy,” by Robert Garner McBrearty, whose excellent stories have been anthologized in the Pushcart Prize. This story remains among the editor’s all-time favorites. This November, we made the following nominations for the Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses series, published every year since 1976. Pushcart Prize nominations: “The Journey to Autumn” by (Essay) Sharon Frame Gay “Esp├Ęce de Cowboy,” (Story) by Charles Holdefer
