Hats Off! to Raleigh Review which was favorably reviewed in The Review Review, concurrent with Raleigh Review's seventh anniversary. "As the editorial team proudly states on its website, the aim of each Raleigh Review issue is to offer readers a new worldly lens through which they can better understand and identify with their neighbors, 'whether across the street or across the globe.' The Spring 2017 issue is no exception," says reviewer Darienne Dickey. "Rob Greene’s review of Small Crimes by Andrea Jurjević really ties the entire issue together as it describes Jurjević’s work as full of 'global poems of genuine humanness.' It’s safe to say that Raleigh Review has achieved that as well."


Hats Off! to Clare Beams whose short-story collection We Show What We Have Learned (Lookout Books, 2016) is a finalist for the PEN/Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction and the Young Lions Fiction Award. “Beams is an expert at providing odd and surprising details that make her stories come alive," says Publishers Weekly, "and the result is a powerful collection about what we need from others and, in turn, what we can offer others of ourselves.”


Hats Off! to Jospeh Bathanti who was profiled on Southern Literary Review. Bathanti is the former Poet Laureate of North Carolina (2012-14) and the author of several books of poetry that have been nominated for the National Book Award and won several prizes. He is is Professor of Creative Writing at Appalachian State University in Boone.
