2010 Pushcart Nominees
From Arsenic Lobster Poetry Journal, Issue Twenty, Summer 2009
Elizabeth Weber
Elizabeth’s first stuffed animal was a sock-monkey named Stumpy (who was really a sock-bear). Her superhero name is LizLiz the Human GPS Device. When she’s not giving directions and CTA advice to complete strangers (and close friends), she pursues an MA in Writing and Publishing from DePaul University and looks for a full-time job near Chicago. She lives near a corn field in a town with no stoplights, twelve miles from the nearest McDonald’s. She drives a Chevy Malibu named Orson (and occasionally a Farmall 300 named Rosinante).

Sara Tracey
Sara pretends to be the urban, academic type, but she is actually a small town girl who loves romance novels and country music. You can find her in Chicago, glaring at people who stand too close to her on the subway. Her chapbook, Flood Year, is available from dancing girl press.

Arlene Ang
Arlene usually appears in printed material and burning wood. It may indicate hunger or drunkenness in the reader. For tips on how to make pickled Arlene Ang, please visit www.leafscape.org.

Jean Hollander
Like so many American poets (Franz Wright, Charles Simic) Jean was born speaking another language: German. She learned English as a child by reading "The Count of Monte Cristo" in an English translation. She has since published two books of translation from German, as well as a much-praised verse translation of Dante's Commedia and three prize-winning books of her own poetry, as well as hundreds of her poems in many magazines. She has taught English literature (of course) and poetry writing at various universities, colleges, and institutions for many years.

Daniel H Robbins
Daniel did not get the Millennium Falcon for Christmas when he was 5, and his life has gone downhill since. His work has been published at failbetter.com, Diagram, storySouth, Birmingham Poetry Review and elsewhere. He received his MA from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and plans to enter a PhD program in English, largely in order to postpone the repayment of his student loans.
