Congratulations Mamie Pound!

Mamie Pound, owner of the Rothschild-Pound House Inn, was nominated for the 2021 Pushcart Prize for her short story "Butterscotch Yellow," a haunting, wistful coming-of-age tale set in the South.

Mamie has won multiple awards in the Columbus Writer’s Guild’s annual contests, was long-listed for the Craft Short Story Prize, and holds an MFA in Fiction from Spalding University.   A long-time patron of the arts in Columbus, she writes flash-fiction, poetry, and short stories.   The Pushcart Prize is the most honored literary project in America.

You may read Mamie’s story in the December, 2020 issue of the James Dickey Review.  You may still find it on Amazon.
