Hats Off! to Cindy Brookshire whose poem “Selma at the Crossroads” will be included in the time capsule of Selma, North Carolina (Johnston County). The capsule will be sealed for the next 100 years with other items such as copies of Johnston Now magazine, The Selma News, essays written by middle and elementary school children, and hundreds of photos taken by local photographers.


Hats Off! to Alli Marshall who was named the 2018 UNC Asheville Ramsey Library Community Author. The Community Author award "will provide Marshall a yearlong residency in UNC Asheville’s Ramsey Library, where she’ll enjoy a dedicated study carrel and access to campus resources. She plans to complete a collaborative project combining the spoken word with local visual and sound artists. 'I’m hoping there’s some way to work on that or some other project with people in the UNCA community,' she says."


Hats Off! to Meagan Lucas whose short story "Getting Past the Gate" has been published by The Same, a literary journal that promotes voices of women and girls. Being raised a person of faith, Lucas has always struggled with questions and doubt. She wrote this story as a way to deal with some of those questions that she still wrestles with.
