Hats Off! to Joan Leotta whose poems appear on The Bamboo Hut and Fox Poetry Box. Another, "My New Chapeau," is forthcoming in Writing in a Woman's Voice. Joan's proifles of local volunteers Mari-Lou Wong-Chong and Herb Lady Margaret Shelton will appear in the spring issue of North Brunswick Magazine. In December, she spent a week-long residency at Wilmington Montessori Elementary School where she taught classes on how to write historical fiction and performed as well.


Hats Off! to Art Taylor whose story "English 398: Fiction Workshop," originally published in the July/August 2018 issue of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, has been named a finalist for this year's Edgar Award for Best Short Story.


Hats Off! to Michael K. Brantley whose essay "Number One Pork Chop Man," about his relationship with a now-closed Chinese restaurant in Rocky Mount, appears in The Magnolia Review. The piece is part of a larger project about the South.
