Hats Off! to Karen Paul Holmes whose poem is included in a new craft book, The Practicing Poet, edited by Diane Lockward of Terrapin Books. Also, the editor of Lascaux Review selected two poems from Karen's book, No Such Thing as Distance, to feature in the journal. Karen also had poems recently published in Emrys Journal and in Anesthesiology (Journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists), which named her as a finalist for their Letheon Prize. Karen was featured at the Georgia Poetry Society's summer meeting, and she read at the Decatur Book Festival (metro Atlanta) in early September. Finally, The Bind published "Navigating the Personal in Poetry: Glenda Council Beall in Conversation with Karen Paul Holmes."


Hats Off! to Glenda Council Beall, the past and current program coordinator for NCWN-West, who was recently featured in the Cherokee Scout. Glenda has collaborated on a new book with co-author Esetlle Rice: Paws, Claws, Hooves, Feathers and Fins: Family Pets and God's Other Creatures.


Hats Off! to Nancy Werking Poling of Black Mountain, the winner of the 2018 Alex Albright Creative Nonfiction Prize for "Leander’s Lies." Nancy will receive $1,000 from the North Carolina Literary Review, thanks to a generous NCLR reader donation that allowed this year’s honorarium to increase from the previous ammount of $250. Nancy's winning essay will be published in NCLR 2019. Nancy is author of the nonfiction book Before it Was Legal: a Black-White Marriage (1945-1987).
