Hats Off!

Good news from our members!

The North Carolina Writers' Network is happy to announce good news from our members. If you have had a piece published, won a prize in a competition, or received an award or honor for your writing, let us know and we'll post the news here. "Hats Off" announcements are available to members only. To post your item on the website, please click here.

Hats Off! to Art Taylor whose piece "Rearview Mirror" from his novel in stories, On the Road with Del and Louise, appears in The Best American Mystery Stories 2016. Edited by Elizabeth George, The Best American Mystery Stories 2016 is a feast of both literary crime and hard-boiled detection, featuring a seemingly innocent murderer, a drug dealer in love, a drunken prank gone terribly wrong, and plenty of other surprising twists and turns. The collection includes work from Steve Almond, Lydia Fitzpatrick, and Elmore Leonard, among many others.

 

Hats Off! to Sam Barbee who has two poems, “Vacancy” and “Vital Signs,” in the anthology Emergence (Kind of a Hurricane Press). Also, his poem “Inscriptions” appears in Snapdragon, edited by Jacinta V. White. Sam's poem “Recurring Dream,” from That Rain We Needed (Press 53), is forthcoming in O.Henry Magazine, and his poem “Triptych” will appear in Yin-Yang, the newest anthology from Old Mountain Press, edited by Tom Davis.

 

Hats Off! to NCWN executive director Ed Southern who'll be a guest host on 88.5 WFDD during the afternoon on Wednesday, October 12, as part of the 88.5 WFDD Annual Fund Drive. It’s a reflection of the seventy years that WFDD has shared with the Triad community. Twenty-four community members will join WFDD to celebrate the station’s birthday and its importance in their lives—from unbiased news coverage, to driveway moments, to great music in the evenings.
