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 Lisa Zerkle who was recently interviewed in The Collagist. Her poem "My Son in the Sea" appears in Issue 70. "Those who do not conform neatly to rigid gender binaries have been met with a spectrum of reaction from 'you are a fantastic creature' to 'you are a freak of nature,'" says Lisa about her poem. "We’ve been telling these stories for centuries in myth and fairy tale. Some will refuse to see beauty if it appears in a form that is unusual to them." To read the full poem, click here.


Hats Off! to Ken Chamlee who published poems recently in Kakalak 2017, Main Street Rag, and Rockvale Review. His poem "Composition" will appear in the next North Carolina Literary Review, and he was awarded Honorable Mention in the R.T. Smith Prize for Narrative Poetry, sponsored by Cold Mountain Review, for his long poem "The Best Material for the Artist in the World."


Hats Off! to Meagan Lucas, Donna Wallace, and Katie Winkler, who are among the contributors to the second edition of Teach.Write.: A Writing Teachers' Literary Journal. Meagan's short story is "Daisy Mae Returns"; Donna's poem is "Online Student"; and Katie, who founded Teach.Write., includes an Editor's Note. The journal can be read for free online, or readers may purchase a print copy.
