Pushcart Press is a publishing house established in 1972 by Bill Henderson (a one-time associate editor at Doubleday) and is perhaps most famous for its Pushcart Prize and for the anthology of prize winners it publishes annually. The press has been honored by Publishers Weekly as one of the USA's "most influential publishers" with the 1979 Carey Thomas Prize for publisher of the year. It has also won the 2005 Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Book Critics Circle and the 2006 Poets & Writers/Barnes & Noble Writers for Writers Prize.[1]
