"Hats Off" announcements are available to members only. To post your item on the website, please click here.

Hats Off! to Brenda Kay Ledford whose poem "Mountain Sisters," in memory of poet Kathryn Stripling Byer, appears in The Lake (August, 2017). "The past unfolds / as a mountain poet / spills words as a Crazy Quilt / unraveling on the page."


Hats Off! to Charley Pearson whose humor collection The Marianated Nottingham and Other Abuses of the Language is a finalist for the Silver Falchion award for best anthology from the upcoming Killer Nashville Writers Conference. Also, fans can vote for Charley to win the International Readers' Choice Award here.


Hats Off! to NCWN Board President Margaret Dardess, author of the new thriller Brutal Silence, who was featured on The Practice of Creativity, the blog of Michele T. Berger. "There never seems to be a shortage of nay-sayers and wet blankets," Margaret says. "Avoid them at all costs. If you want to write, write."
