Hats Off! to Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra whose short-story collection The Fish Tank: And Other Short Stories won the Silver Medal at the 2018 Feathered Quill Book Awards, named one of the best award programs for independent authors by The Association of Independent Authors.


Hats Off! to Eric Roe whose story "Bell," which will be published by Chautauqua this coming summer, has won Chautauqua's Editors Prize. Also, his essay "Joe New Hire's First Night" appeared in South 85 in December, and his essay "Machines" is forthcoming in The Tishman Review this spring.


Hats Off! to Denise Heinze whose debut novel Sally St. Johns (BookLocker, 2017) was favorably reviewed by Donna Meredith in Southern Literary Review. "The sassy narrator and her outlandish but devoted mother provoke frequent laughter," says Meredith. "The plot chuckles along to an unexpected but earned conclusion that left me wondering if the answer to our energy problems might be right under our behinds."
