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 Tina Barr who was interviewed on "Morning Edition" on Blue Ridge Public Radio. Tina's new collection of poetry, her third, is Green Target. “I’m trying to make the greatest art I can, so I want to use language that is dense, that is complex, that is going to resonate,” she said. “I’m always writing to be true to the best art I can make, not to be accessible to an audience.”


Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose poem "Autumn Treats" appears in issue #310 of The Weekly Avocet. Her poem beginning "Thunderous waves crash over rocks" appears in issue #49 of Three Line Poetry. And her flash fiction piece "The Dare" will appear in the upcoming print anthology Empty Silos published by Inwood Indiana Press, a subsidiary of Prolific Press.


Hats Off! to Loren Leith of Andrews who won the prestigious Royal Palm Literary Award (RPLA). Leith’s winning entry, "Basement Level," won First Place for Unpublished Nonfiction Short Story Genre. The award was announced at the Florida Writing Association's recent four-day annual conference in Altamonte Springs, Florida. This annual competition, which received 420 qualified submissions, was RPLA’s seventeenth. The Royal Palm Literary Awards competition is a service of the Florida Writers Association established to recognize excellence in members’ published and unpublished works while providing objective and constructive written assessments for all entrants.
