Hats Off! to Michael Connolly whose book ...But Few Are Chosen: A Different Path to Coming of Age (Vandamere Press, 2018), which he wrote with Richard Olive and John Tuohey, was featured by the Catholic News Service. The book tells the story of the boys at St. John's Atonement Seminary in the Finger Lakes region of New York, which they came to from "hardscrabble childhoods." Now in their seventies and still friends, the men look back on their time at St. John's and the lives they've led since with the benefit of perspective and a new understanding of the value of friendship.


Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose two pieces of microfiction, "Wine Therapy" and "Heirloom," are posted in the April online issue of Nailpolish Stories: A Tiny and Colorful Journal. Also, her haiku about a great horned owl appears in NatureWriting (March 2, 2019). Her poem "Ascension" was accepted for the Poetry Leaves Exhibit, sponsored by the Waterford Township Library in Waterford, Michigan, and will be on display May 1-15, 2019, and be included in the Poetry Leaves bound volume. Suzanne has been accepted for the nonfiction workshop with Robin Wall Kimmerer at the 2019 Looking Glass Rock Writers' Conference, May 9-12, at Brevard College in Brevard.


Hats Off! to Maren O. Mitchell whose poems "The Serpentine Letter" and "Self-Protection" will appear in POEM (May, 2019). Her poem "The Sleep of Angels" will be published in Slant, A Journal of Poetry from the University of Central Arkansas (May/June, 2019), and her poems "Outcomes" and "Purples" appear online in The Lake, out of the UK.
