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 Maren O. Mitchell who has had poems accepted by the following publications: Comstock Review published "Appalachian Come Home" (Spring/Summer, 2019); Tar River Poetry will publish "Church of the Moment" in their fall issue; Poetry East took "R" for Poetry East 97 (Fall, 2019); and Chiron Review will publish "W" in a future issue.

 

Hats Off! to Andrew K. Clark whose essay "A Church for All" was recently published by The Wrath Bearing Tree. The piece is about a tiny church his grandfather built near Weaverville, North Carolina, in the 1980s. "He would often talk to me about the church, and how he built it for sinners. 'Drunks and whores' are welcome to the church, he’d say, and 'no one can judge them or look down their long noses at them.' He was proud they could come to the church anytime they wanted, as the church was open twenty-four hours a day. The lights inside and outside of the church were always on, and my grandmother, Christina Clark, decorated the church with a nativity scene each Christmas."

 

Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose poems "Ancestral Calls" and "Snake Pit" have been published in the 2019 Summer Poetry Quarterly. Her poem "Lazy Summer Day" appeared in issue #349 of The Weekly Avocet (August 11, 2019). Her poem "Waning Time" appeared in the online journal Twist in Time Literary Magazine (September 1, 2019). Her skinny poem "Hour Glass" has been selected for "the first formal anthology of its kind that documents the form" (Truth Thomas, founder and editor). The anthology is scheduled to be released in late November.
