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 Caroline Taylor who published three short stories in September: "Briar Patch" in The Radvocate, Vol. 14; "Desperate Times" in Work Literary Magazine; and "That Hope-y, Change-y Thing" in We've Been Trumped, an anthology published by Darkhouse Books.


Hats Off! to Heather Adams of Raleigh whose first novel, Maranatha Road, has been accepted for publication in Fall 2017 by Vandalia Press, the creative imprint of West Virginia University Press. Short stories based on the novel appear in Pembroke Magazine, The Bluestone Review, and Southern Writers Magazine and were recognized as finalists for the Reynolds Price Fiction Prize, the Ruth Moose Flash Fiction Prize, and the North Carolina State University Short Fiction Prize. Maranatha Road won first place in the novel category of the Knoxville Writers’ Guild Contest.


Hats Off! to Dori Ann Dupré whose debut novel, Scout's Honor, won the Bronze Medal in Fiction—Southern in the 2016 International Book Award contest from Reader's Favorite. A coming of age and self discovery story spanning 1983 to the modern day in North Carolina, Scout's Honor takes us on the life journey of Scout Webb, a small-town Southern girl. It asks the question: who owns the rights to your honor when it's been taken from you?
