Hats Off! to Joan Leotta whose short story "Unexpected Gift" will appear in the December issue of Clubhouse magazine. Also, her poem "Caught" was selected as one of the July, 2018, winners of Nancy Smith's Women Speak ekphrastic competition; Joan's poem "Whirl, Whorl, Whirlpool" has been posted on Visual Verse for August; and her poem "In My Son's Voice" for their July challenge. Finally, The Ekphrastic Review published her poem "When God Calls."


Hats Off! to North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame inductees Clyde Edgerton and Lee Smith, whose essays are included in the new anthology Southern Writers on Writing (University Press of Mississippi, 2018), edited by Susan Cushman. "Insightful, inspiring, and sometimes contentious," says Beth Ann Fennelly, the poet laureate of Mississippi, "Southern Writers on Writing is as complicated and diverse as the South itself. This collection is required reading for anyone who hopes to understand our fraught and blessed region."


Hats Off! to Sylvia Freeman whose poem "Muse" was one of the May winners in Nancy Smith's Women Speak ekphrastic competition, where women writers are invited to respond with poetry or prose to select Smith paintings.
