Hats Off! to Alice Osborn whose script "Can I Put Gigolo on My Resume?" received an Honorable Mention in the 10-Minute Play Contest sponsored by the Winston-Salem Writers. Staged readings of the winning plays will happen Saturday evening, April 21, at the Shepherd's Center, 1700 Ebert St., Winston-Salem.


Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose poem "Wintry Treats" was posted at Plum Tree Tavern (Feb. 25). Her poem "Marine Illusionist" is forthcoming in Issue 3 of Pangolin Review (May 8). Her poem "Dancing Leaves" is included in the Winter 2017 Poetry Quarterly. Her personal narrative "Calm Down," about her first solo flight in a Cessna 152, was selected for the Personal Essay Publishing Project (Winter 2018). Only North Carolina and Kentucky authors are included in the final collection, as it pays tribute to the resourcefulness and the character of Daniel Boone and his colleagues on the 250th anniversary of their experience hunting in the wilderness. Suzanne's essay is one of forty-five forthcoming in the anthology Bearing Up. The project was sponsored by Randell Jones and Daniel Boone Footsteps out of Winston-Salem. Publication is expected in early spring, 2018.


Hats Off! to Cindy Brookshire whose poem “Selma at the Crossroads” will be included in the time capsule of Selma, North Carolina (Johnston County). The capsule will be sealed for the next 100 years with other items such as copies of Johnston Now magazine, The Selma News, essays written by middle and elementary school children, and hundreds of photos taken by local photographers.
