Congratulations to all the winners of 2014 Pushcarts, especially The Iowa Review's own

  • Ayşe Papatya Bucak for her story "Iconography," about a Turkish student's enigmatic hunger strike (Fall 2012),
  • Sabine Heinlein for her essay “A Portrait of the Writer as a Rabbit,” which tells the story of the author's immigration to the U.S. through the lens of her kinship with rabbits (Spring 2012), and
  • Molly Patterson for "Don't Let Them Catch You," about a latchkey kid navigating the dangers both real and imagined of her suburban neighborhood (Winter 2012/13).

Read their work in the 2014 Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses anthology—or, you know, The Iowa Review.
