Hats Off! to Lucia Walton Robinson whose poem "Adam and Eve in the Florida Panhandle" appears in the current issue of Split Rock Review. Emerald Coast Review's just-published 2017 edition includes her poem "Incident on Okaloosa Island" and memoir "Half a Life in Gloves" (winner of the Charlotte Writers' Club's 2017 nonfiction prize). And "To Simon, in a Grecian Cap" will appear in the Fall issue of The Penwood Review.


Hats Off! to Tina Barr who won the 2017 Barrow Street Book Prize for her forthcoming poetry collection, Green Target. The book focuses on the self as target, on the way in which we target the Other, and on the Earth as target. It opens outward in concentric circles, to other cultures and histories. It includes a sequence of ekphrastic poems on the target paintings of Jasper Johns. The contest judge was Patricia Spears Jones.


Hats Off! to the winners of the 2017 Faulkner-Wisdom Competition, including Heather Bell Adams for The Disappearance of Audrey Thorpe (Semi-Finalist, Novel-in-Progress); Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin for Thing of Darkness (Semi-Finalist, Novel-in-Progress); Mark Havlik for "Camelot Redux" and "Testament" (Semi-Finalists, Short Story); Leslie Tall Manning for Feral Maril and Her Little Brother Carol (Semi-Finalist, Novel) and The Sunny Side of the Street (Semi-Finalist, Novel-in-Progress); and NCWN trustee Brian Ward Zimmerman for Parting (Finalist, Novel) and "Losing My Religion" (Semi-Finalist, Short Story).
