Hats Off! to Valerie Nieman (First Place) and Caren Stuart (Honorable Mention), two of the winners of the Flyleaf Poetry Contest! This competition, sponsored by Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill, awards original poems up to sixty lines. Winners receive gift certificates to Flyleaf Books and will be the Featured Readers for Flyleaf's Second Thursday Poetry Reading on October 12 at 7:00 pm. An open mic follows.


Hats Off! to Heather Bell Adams (Maranatha Road), Wiley Cash (The Last Ballad), and Donna Everhart (The Road to Bittersweet), whose books were highlighted for the 2017 Fall/Winter Reading List from Deep South Magazine.


Hats Off! to Sharon Louise Howard whose short story "Just the Way She Likes It" appears in Literally Stories. "Mary deadheaded the bruise-brown marigolds with a quick jab of her small shears, accepting a certain amount of collateral damage. Finger-pinching took too long."
