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 Carol Pearce Bjorlie who won The Haiku Award and publication in Pine Song from the North Carolina Poetry Society. She has also had a Young Adult Trilogy accepted by Second Wind Publishing. Book One will be published in September, Book Two, in February, and Book Three, later.


Hats Off! to award-winning author Marni Graff whose third Nora Tierney Mystery is in print and e-book. Set in Cumbria, the mystery revolves around a theatre troupe who arrive at the lodge where Nora lives to stage Noel Coward's play Blithe Spirit. Chapter epigrams are lines from the play, and its plot affects the action. A copy of the book has been installed in Coward's archives by his estate.


Hats Off! to Mark Havlik, Lynn Veach Sadler, and Michele Tracy Berger who finished First, Second, and Third respectively in the "Creative Nonfiction" category of the 2014 Anthology Contest sponsored by the Winston-Salem Writers. Havlik's winning essay was titled "In a Word." Sadler ("Tourist Roulette in the New Russia") and Berger ("Navigating the Man-cession") will be published along with Havlik and other category winners in the Winston-Salem Writers 2014 Anthology.
