Hats Off! to Earl Carlton Huband whose collection of twenty-eight poems won Fourth Prize in a national contest for former Peace Corps Volunteers writing about their Peace Corps experience. "Submissions were judged on how well they advanced the Third Goal of the Peace Corps Act: To increase the understanding of the peoples served on the part of Americans." Seven of these poems are posted on the Peace Corps website, here.

Also, one of Earl's non-PeaceCorps manuscripts was selected as a finalist in the 2017 Longleaf Press chapbook competition at Methodist University.


Hats Off! to Charles "LC" Fiore who was quoted in the article "The Cream of the Crop" on the Independent Book Publishers Association website. "The product matters," Fiore said, offering tips for future IBPA contestants. "Most importantly, comport yourself professionally, from the cover letter, to the supporting materials, to the book itself. Pay attention to details, be courteous, and remember to be grateful. We’re lucky to get to do this stuff." Fiore's novel, The Last Great American Magic, was a Silver Winner in the 29th Annual IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards in the category of Historical Fiction.


Hats Off! to Sharon Louise Howard whose short story "Felled" appears in Streetlight Magazine.
