Hats Off! to Steve Cushman of Greensboro whose poetry manuscript How Birds Fly won the 2017-2018 Lena Shull Book Award from the North Carolina Poetry Society. How Birds Fly will be published in 2018 by St. Andrews Press.


Hats Off! to Shuly Xochitl Cawood who was featured in the "Author Profiles & Interviews" section of Southern Literary Review. "I write for me most if not all of the time—that is, for the fun of it rather than with an endgame in mind," Shuly says. "This allows me the freedom to experience the joy that got me started writing in the first place, and it is why, to this day, I continue to love writing." Her new memoir is The Going and Goodbye, "an examination of loss and leaving and the search for meaning in the memories that remain."


Hats Off! to Judy Hogan whose new poetry collection, Those Eternally Linked Lives, is due out January 9, 2018. The collection, which includes illustrations, focuses on aging and a "persistent love experience." The book has garnished blurbs from Joanie McLean, author of Place and Up From Dust, and North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame inductees Jaki Shelton Green and Shelby Stephenson.
