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 Suzanne Cottrell whose flash fiction piece "Garden Varieties" was selected for Nailpolish Stories' Best of 2017, which was posted online December 31, 2017. “'Best of 2017' stories were selected for their use of unique language, breadth of story in so few words, emotional impact, and the complex and original relationship of the titles to their stories."

Also, her nonfiction piece "Timeless Land" was a semi-finalist in Parks and Points' 2017 Fall Contest, and her poems "On Ice" and "Celestial Visions" are forthcoming in Poetry Quarterly.


Hats Off! to NCWN trustee Michele Tracy Berger whose novella "Reenu-You" was named a 2017 Top 10 Fantastical Book of the Triangle by Samuel Montgomery-Blinn of Indy Week. "Profane, funny, and moving, it's a taut, well-woven novella of friendship, loss, and abuse of power."


Hats Off! to Brenda Kay Ledford who received the 2017 Paul Green Multimedia Award from the North Carolina Society of Historians for her blog Clay County Yore.
