Good news from our members!

The North Carolina Writers' Network is happy to announce good news from our members. If you have had a piece published, won a prize in a competition, or received an award or honor for your writing, let us know and we'll post the news here. "Hats Off" announcements are available to members only. To post your item on the website, please click here.

Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose poem "Wintry Banquet" was published in the 2018 Fall print issue of Poetry Quarterly. Her haiku beginning "Suspended halo" and her three line poem beginning "Pristine snowfall blankets the land" appeared in the online issue #320 of The Weekly Avocet (January 20, 2019). She will have two poems in this year's NC statewide poetry initiative "Poetry in Plain Sight," which will be displayed in Winston-Salem and New Bern. "Autumn Acrobats" will be displayed in September, and "Precision Pilots" will be displayed in October. Sunday afternoon, March 10, 2019, Suzanne will read her poem "Altered Silhouette" as part of Nancy Smith's "Women Speak" exhibit at the Frank Gallery in Chapel Hill.


Hats Off! to Dorianne Laux whose poem "Snow" is included in the Winter, 2019, issue of Prairie Schooner, part of the Opiods Portfolio edited by Glenna Luschei. "In Laux's poem," Luschei wrote in her introduction, "in which the speaker's sister dies, the ending shows humanity out on the sidewalks pushing forward."


Hats Off! to Earl Carlton Huband whose poetry chapbook The Innocence of Education, based on his experiences in the Sultanate of Oman, which won the Longleaf Press 2018 Poetry Award sponsored by Methodist University, was favorably reviewed in Peace Corps Worldwide, a non-profit that promotes the writings of former Peace Corps Volunteers.
