Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose poem "Murmuration" has been selected for the statewide poetry initiative Poetry in Plain Sight. Her poem is scheduled to be displayed during April of 2018. Also, her three-line poem beginning "Forest green leaves eager to emerge..." was published in issue #47 of Three Line Poetry on Jan. 28. "Glacial Ecstasy" was posted at Nature Writing (Feb. 10), and "Morning Evasion" was published by The Dandelion Review (Feb. 12).


Hats Off! to Billy Baites who will celebrate the publication of his short story "Daddy Don't Go" in the Winter 2018 issue of the Catamaran Literary Reader on Sunday, February 11 at 3:00 pm at Scuppernong Books, 304 S. Elm St. in downtown Greensboro. Members of the North Carolina Writers' Network are invited to attend the launch party. Enjoy refreshments while listening to a hilarious reading of a vignette from this story that entertains readers and listeners with the eccentric Southern traditions of when the nearly departed become the dearly departed.


Hats Off! to Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra whose short-story collection The Fish Tank: And Other Short Stories won the Silver Medal at the 2018 Feathered Quill Book Awards, named one of the best award programs for independent authors by The Association of Independent Authors.
