Hats Off! to Steve Mitchell and NCWN membership coordinator Deonna Kelli Sayed, two of the organizers for Greensboro Bound Literary Festival, who appeared with poet Coen Cauthen on Gate City Live. Listen to the full interview here.


Hats Off! to Michael K. Brantley whose new nonfiction piece is up on daCunha, a literary journal based in the United Kingdom. "Those Old Barns" is about the tobacco barns on his parents' farm, and how the barns have been given new life—albeit in another location. It is a chapter from a work in progress.


Hats Off! to Cynthia Lewis who has been awarded the 2017 Meringoff Prize in nonfiction by the Association of Literary Scholars, Critics, and Writers. “Body Doubles,” an interview-based essay, narrates what happened when a bomb in a St. Louis parking garage injured the unintended victim, a lawyer whose car was nearly identical to that of the intended victim, also a lawyer. The essay will be published in Literary Matters, the literary magazine sponsored by the ALSCW.
