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 whose poems "The Serpentine Letter" and "Self-Protection" will appear in POEM (May, 2019). Her poem "The Sleep of Angels" will be published in Slant, A Journal of Poetry from the University of Central Arkansas (May/June, 2019), and her poems "Outcomes" and "Purples" appear online in The Lake, out of the UK.


Hats Off! to Wim Coleman whose short play “Talk to the Hand” is one of the top ten selections out of a national call for scripts for the Actors’ Theatre Grand Rapids’ "Living on the Edge” Ten Minute Playwriting Festival. These ten scripts will have a public reading on April 6 at 11:00 am at the Spectrum Theatre in Grand Rapids. Five scripts will then be chosen for full performance in June. 


Hats Off! to Ross White, co-winner of the Sexton Poetry Prize for the best unpublished poetry collection by an American poet. Ross wins $1,500 and publication of his manuscript, Charm Offensive, by Eyewear Publishing. The other winner is Sarah Bridgins for Death and Exes. "Every word seemed personal and deeply felt, as if both of these poets urgently needed to tell me what they were thinking," says final judge Lloyd Schwartz. "as if each writer was engaged in the process of discovering in the course of a poem what it was they each had to say."
