Celebration in Sylva

City Lights Bookstore in Sylva will host a publication party this Sunday, August 8, at 5 p.m., in honor of the release of Echoes Across the Blue Ridge, the new anthology from our friends and fellow Network members in NetWest.

If you’re not familiar with NetWest, it’s short for NC Writers’ Network – West, a chapter of the Network for writers who live in North Carolina’s nine westernmost counties, as well as northwest South Carolina and northeast Georgia.  Congratulations to all those whose work appears in Echoes, but especially to Nancy Simpson and Glenda Beall for all their hard work on this project.

Echoes is available at bookstores and gift shops throughout southwestern North Carolina, and online at or

In other news, Winston-Salem’s Press 53 has launched Prime Number, a new literary magazine edited by Clifford Garstang.  You can read an interview with him here.
