The Press is excited to announce that we’ll be publishing Road Trip, a novella by Lynette D’Amico, in 2015. Road Trip is a narrative of disappointment, of failed rescues, of the ghosts that haunt us, and the bones we leave behind. The novella was short-listed for the Paris Literary Prize in 2011, the centerpiece of a collection that was a finalist for the 2012 Flannery O’Connor Award in Short Fiction, and first runner-up in the Quarterly West Novella Contest earlier this year. Lynette’s short story “Ashes, Ashes,” which appeared in The Gettysburg Review, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and her creative nonfiction has also appeared in Brevity. A former advertising copy writer, Lynette is currently content editor for the online theater journal HowlRound. She lives in Boston, Massachusetts.


Pushcart Prize nominations:  Congratulations to the following authors whose work has been nominated by TWP for a Pushcart Prize.  Their work appeared in [Ex]tinguished & [Ex]tinct:  An Anthology of Things That No Longer [Ex]ist, edited by John McCarthy. In fiction, “A County without Weather” by Majnun Ben-David and “Fire Extinguished” by Damyanti Ghosh.  In poetry, “The Last Jew” by M.E. Silverman, “Lines of Demarcation” by Elmaz Abinader, “Red Wolf Capture” by Travis Mossotti and “In-Grown” [2] by Elizabeth Deanna Morris Lakes.  TWP’s associate editor Pamm Collebrusco was also instrumental in bringing the anthology together (in fact, she thought up the title).
