Hats Off! to Peter Venable whose poem “Crab Nebula” won the Gold Medal in the Poetry category of the Piedmont Plus Senior Games/Silver Arts sponsored by the city of Winston-Salem. Also, his short story “Black Ankle Road” took home the Silver Medal in the Short Story category. Medals were awarded on June 25 with a drive-through ceremony at the Black Phillips Smith Government Center, where committee members and Recreation & Parks staff held congratulatory signs and took photos. All entries will be compiled into an anthology, available for $5 at the Black Phillips Smith Government Center.
