Hats Off!

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 Chris Roerden who reports that the 2014 anthology Writes of Passage: Adventures on the Writer's Journey, to which she was invited to submit an essay, is one of five nominated books for this year's upcoming Agatha Awards in the category of Nonfiction. Chris' 575-word essay "Married to the Job" covers a writer's commitment. Coincidentally, her own tenth book, Don't Murder Your Mystery, was the first book about writing to win an Agatha in the fourteen years since the Nonfiction category was added to the national awards. In addition, Hank Phillippi Ryan, editor of the just-nominated anthology, contracts with Chris to edit her own writing: five thrillers so far in her second series of mysteries, the multi-award-winning Jane Ryland/Jake Brogan series.


Hats Off! to Glenda Barrett who had five poems selected for Kaleidoscope magazine: "Stay Seated Please," "Bound," "At Arm's Reach," "Boundaries," and "No More comfort, please." Another of her poems, "VFW Fish Fry," is forthcoming in the anthology No Achilles from Waterwood Press, and her poem "Ordinary Guy" will appear in The Healing Muse: A Journal of Literary and Visual Arts.


Hats Off! to Moira Crone whose novel, The Ice Garden (Carolina Wren Press), was reviewed in the Southern Literary Review.
