Hats Off! to NCWN trustee Michele T. Berger whose short story "Nussia… I Said Her Name Like Mine" appears in the anthology Awakenings (Summer, 2018) from Book Smugglers Press. In the collection, six writers interpret the open-ended "awakenings" prompt. Michele's story is about "an African American girl whose family 'wins' a lottery to be the first host family to an alien."


Hats Off! to Joan Leotta whose poem "The Head" was read at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, England, on March 24 as one of several finalists in a ekphrasitc contest highlighting an exhibit of drawings by Michelangelo.
