Hats Off! to Cynthia Lewis who has been awarded the 2017 Meringoff Prize in nonfiction by the Association of Literary Scholars, Critics, and Writers. “Body Doubles,” an interview-based essay, narrates what happened when a bomb in a St. Louis parking garage injured the unintended victim, a lawyer whose car was nearly identical to that of the intended victim, also a lawyer. The essay will be published in Literary Matters, the literary magazine sponsored by the ALSCW.

 

Hats Off! to Joan Leotta whose essay "Cousinly Love" appears in the May issue of Sasee Magazine. Her poem "Weekend Solitude" appears in Issue 78 of the Ghazal Page (April, 2018), and Joan will be a featured performer at Roadside Tales in Pittsboro on May 18—tellin gfood tales.

 

Hats Off! to NCWN regional rep Tracy Crow of Randolph County: her military arts nonprofit, MilSpeak Foundation, received a grant from Wounded Warrior Project® to host two free weekend writing workshops for women military veterans and women military family members.
