Hats Off! to Consuelo Marshall whose poem "Myself as Playboy Bunny" won First Prize (£500) in the Verve Poetry Festival Competition, Birmingham, UK. Luke Kennard was the final judge. Consuelo will travel to take part in the poetry and spoken word festival, which runs February 15-18.


Hats Off! to Malaika Albrecht and Marty Silverthorne who are finalists to be The Heart of the Pamlico Poet Laureate. On February 3 at 7:00 pm, Albrecht and Silverthrone, along with other finalists, will give a reading to celebrate the power of words. Judges for the free event are John Hoppenthaler, Luke Whisnant, and Phillip Shabazz. "The Heart of Pamlico Poet Laureate will serve as the ambassador of Eastern North Carolina's vibrant literary life," says Eileen Lettick, a representative of the Pamlico Writers' Group, "promoting its poetic community and celebrating the written word in North Carolina, always mindful of the fact that poetry matters."
