The Hippocampus Magazine editors nominated “Maybe We Can Make a Circle” for the Pushcart Prize for creative nonfiction. Just being nominated is such an honor. I’m so grateful.
Thanks to editors who published and nominated my essay. And thanks to the readers who shared it and commented. This piece was a long time in the making. I never expected this kind of a response.
I am also in very good company. If you love great writing, please consider reading the work of the other nominees.
I’m pretty damn excited to tell you that “Maybe We Can Make a Circle” was honored as the June 2017 issue’s “most memorable essay” by Hippocampus Magazine.
You can read my essay and all the other “most memorable” essays on the Hippocampus website at: http://www.hippocampusmagazine.com/category/most-memorable/.
Thanks for your interest and support! I’m hoping to have more publication news for you soon. Check back here or @npiasecki on Twitter.
A craft piece I wrote about my recent poetry writing adventures is live on the Brevity Magazine Blog today. It’s called “A Poem, A Keyhole.”

Thanks to Allison at Brevity for being such a cool editor to work with.
