“You Night” by Gabriela Marie Milton selected for 2022 Pushcart Prize nomination

Dear Readers,

I am deeply grateful to my publisher Brian Geiger – Vita Brevis Press – for selecting my poem You Night for 2022 Pushcart Prize nomination.

Below, please see his email.

My poem You Night was published in Vita Brevis Poetry Anthology, III and you can read it here.

In four years and a half of blogging I managed to accomplish a lot, including two poetry books one of which became a #1 Amazon bestseller.

I very much appreciate everyone who supported me during my journey as an author. I strive to give back to our community and I will continue to do so.

Have a glorious spring everyone.

      1. Thank you hon. I read the myth on your blog. I gave you a like but I was unable to comment on. I will try again soon. Take care of yourself.

    1. Thank you for your kind words hon. Indeed, I am deeply honored by this nomination.

    1. Thank you so much hon. Your kind words mean a lot to me. Most say that from here it’s strictly a matter of luck. I really do not know. All I know is that I am beyond delighted to be a Pushcart Nominee.
      Have a splendid weak ahead and thank you again for your support.

    1. Thank you so much Ingrid. Wishing you a beautiful spring ❀️🌺🌸

  2. Congratulations Dearest Gabriela and to be nominated for a Pushcart Prize, is such an honor! You have my vote! I love this poem and with lines like, ” A bat-eyed wind blew, and the earth turned toward itself.
    And I thought to myself: you night, how painful you are.” I think you have an exceptionally good chance of sweeping away the judges. Big hugs and wishing you all the success in the world.

    1. You are so king my fabulous friend. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I am glad you love the poem and please know your vote means a lot. I am honored to have it.
      Lots of love to you hon.

    1. I am not unique. YOU ARE.
      I am glad you enjoyed the poem Bo.
      Big kiss for little B and lots of love to you.

      1. A friend bought it as a gift, and that’s how I discovered Elena Ferrante. Then I found all other sequels on pdf. Her style is excellent, and she’s a real mystery. She uses a pseudonym and nb knows what she looks like. I’m currently watching the series, which is a real pleasure too.

        You’ll find all four books here:


      2. Bo, thank you so much for telling me this and sending the link. I cannot wait to read her work. Honestly, I need something new. So thank you again. You’re a gem.

      3. You’re welcome, hon. She’s been a real refreshment. Serious, but somehow light, don’t know how to explain it. Though she covers serious issues, she’s not depressing. Love at first read, really.

      4. You just explained it. “Love at first read.” This sounds beautiful.

      5. You know Bo, it’s funny. Apparently her date of birth and her nationality are known. Yet nobody knows her name. Anyway, I am looking forward to reading her work. Thank you again.

      6. A Slovenian friend living in Italy, who also loves her, tells me recently there have been assumptions that it’s a he, which we both very much doubt. Such a thing could be written only by a woman. Period.

        Btw, I’m always a bit suspicious of best-sellers. This one proved me wrong, obviously.

        And yes, you can find each novel on that site, instead of reading all 4 in 1. Just search the title in a search box. I find it easier that way.


      7. Two minutes ago, for some weird reason, I thought the same thing: it got to be a man. But I did not read anything yet so…

        “Btw, I’m always a bit suspicious of best-sellers” That’s a lot to be said here. It will make a great topic for a private conversation.

        “And yes, you can find each novel on that site, instead of reading all 4 in 1. Just search the title in a search box. I find it easier that way.”

        I found them already. Thank you again Bo.

        Have a great night and a good week ahead.
