I don’t understand: It’s November 2018 and the Pushcart and BAE books are already out. So how are these nominees for 2018?
The 2018 volumes actually contain the best of 2017. Books like these take a while to assemble.
I was confused because there’s an image of the Best American Essays 2018 book next to “Our 2018 Best American Essays nominees.” These are pieces you’re hoping will get published in the BAE 2019 book.
