Wright also is a contributing editor for the Pushcart Prizes; and a senior editor for Lost Horse Press, for which she is editing "Raising Lilly Ledbetter", an anthology of poems on women and work.

Kate Kingston (W.D. Snodgrass Award for Poetic Endeavor) is the author of "Shaking the Kaleidoscope" (Lost Horse Press, 2012), awarded the Idaho Prize.
