NMC Workshop Alum Awarded Pushcart Prize

23 May

The number of awards and publications from Mailer colony writers is growing!

NMC workshop alum, Steve Adams, was recently awarded a Pushcart Prize! The essay was workshopped in J. Michael Lennon’s creative non-fiction summer workshop and caught the eyes of many. His award winning essay, “Touch,” which describes the writer’s relationship with a cancer stricken masseur, was originally published in the Spring 2012 issue of the literary journal The Pinch. The essay will also be reprinted in the 2014 Pushcart Prize Anthology.

In addition to his recent Pushcart, Adams has also received Glimmer Train’s Short Story Award for New Writers and The Bronx Writers’ Center “Chapter One” Contest. Steve Adams, both a writer and writing coach, explores not only non-fiction, but playwriting, fiction, screenwriting and poetry as well. His dedication is an inspiration to us!


Way to go, Steve!
