Hats Off! to Vice President of the NCWN Board of Trustees Paul Jones, who was inducted into the North Carolina State University Computer Science Hall of Fame in November. "Over his career, he has leveraged this strong technical foundation combining it with a passion for writing and poetry, to establish a legacy of innovation and creativity that will be enjoyed by future generations."


Hats Off! to Lenard D. Moore whose new poetry collection, Long Rain, was reviewed in South Florida Poetry Journal. "Reading Lenard Moore’s work one has the feeling of being washed clean, of being given the world, and oneself, afresh," says reviewer Michael Hettich. "These are small poems only in their brevity; they open out to the big world, and continue to resonate long after the book is put down: delicate dances to stir the heart and mind." Also, Moore's haiku "bobbing and bobbing" appears on Charlotte Digregorio's Writer's Blog (November 26, 2021).


Hats Off! to Wayne Caldwell (Woodsmoke), Vicki Lane (And the Crows Took Their Eyes), and NCWN Trustee Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle (Even As We Breathe), who are among the finalists for the 2021 Thomas Wolfe Memorial Literary Award. This award has been presented annually by the Western North Carolina Historical Association since 1955 for printed works—including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama—that focus special attention on Western North Carolina.
