Hats Off! to Maryrose Carroll who has released a new volume of her husband Paul Carroll's poetry: God and Other Poems: Final Poems. Facing death, Paul wrote these poems during the last ten weeks of his life. He reckons with his feelings, death, and ultimate questions through wonder, satire, and generous humor.


Hats Off! to Tony Wayne Brown whose short story "Mark Nipple's Lucky Number" has been accepted by The Charles Carter, a writing organization that has chapters across the U.S., including Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. This marks Tony's sixty-ninth publication.


Hats Off! to Joan Leotta who has work in four anthologies: Words and Other Wild Things (two children's poems); Shortest Day Longest Night; Solstice Poem; and The Poeming Pigeon's All About Music Anthology. Also, her humorous "pastoral" was accepted on The Short Humor, and on November 26, her poem "Rembrandt Speaks to the Voter" was read at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, England, as part of their Ekphrastic Poetry reading series. Finally, the third book in her Rosa series, Rosa and the Red Apron, is out now.
