Hats Off! to Kate Bullard Adams whose manuscript Hang Me the Moon was named a runner-up for The William Faulkner – William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition (Novel/Book Length Fiction). In her comments, final judge Cynthia Grau of Spiegel & Grau said, "In exploring the emotional fragility of young women on the cusp of adulthood, Hang Me the Moon beautifully captures the in-betweenness of being during a time of political, social, and racial turmoil," an "affecting novel of both ideas and emotions."


Hats Off! to Jenny Bates whose poem "Sweep of Welcome" is forthcoming in Redheaded Stepchild magazine.


Hats Off! to Lenard D. Moore whose haiku “rush hour moon” appears in the Asahi Haikuist Network (in Japan). His poetry collection, The Geography of Jazz, is included in the feature "10 North Carolina Poets Who Show the Beauty in the World" in Walter magazine and is listed for Jazz Appreciation Month by Shreve Memorial Library. Also, the anthology All the Songs We Sing: Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Carolina African American Writers’ Collective, which he edited, was favorably reviewed on the blog of Sundress Publications.
