Hats Off! to Denise Heinze whose short story "The Grid" appears in the Fall 2017 issue of Thema Literary Journal. "The Grid" was a quarter-finalist in the 2015 Ghost Story Supernatural Fiction Award contest and has been published as an e-book.


Hats Off! to Lucia Walton Robinson whose poem "Adam and Eve in the Florida Panhandle" appears in the current issue of Split Rock Review. Emerald Coast Review's just-published 2017 edition includes her poem "Incident on Okaloosa Island" and memoir "Half a Life in Gloves" (winner of the Charlotte Writers' Club's 2017 nonfiction prize). And "To Simon, in a Grecian Cap" will appear in the Fall issue of The Penwood Review.


Hats Off! to Tina Barr who won the 2017 Barrow Street Book Prize for her forthcoming poetry collection, Green Target. The book focuses on the self as target, on the way in which we target the Other, and on the Earth as target. It opens outward in concentric circles, to other cultures and histories. It includes a sequence of ekphrastic poems on the target paintings of Jasper Johns. The contest judge was Patricia Spears Jones.
