Hats Off! to Steve Cushman whose new novel, Hopscotch (Livingston Press, 2017), was favorably reviewed by Claire Matturro in Southern Literary Review. Matturo called Hopscotch, the August Read of the Month, "a complex, moving, and well-written story that transcends mere chalk drawing. Steve Cushman’s Hopscotch is a gift to readers, one that offers the restorative powers of hope and human connection."


Hats Off! to Heather Bell Adams of Raleigh who was named the Emerging Writer Fellow for the 2017 inaugural Laughing Heart Literary Festival founded by Amy Greene and Trent Thompson.


Hats Off! to Brenda Kay Ledford whose poem "Mountain Sisters," in memory of poet Kathryn Stripling Byer, appears in The Lake (August, 2017). "The past unfolds / as a mountain poet / spills words as a Crazy Quilt / unraveling on the page."
