Hats Off! to all of the Carolina Woman 2020 Writing Contest winners, including NCWN member Jane Rockwell, of Sanford, who won Grand Prize with her poem "My Mother’s Hands." Ashley Memory took First Prize with her essay, "A Table of Two Tumbles," while NCWN Regional Rep Carol Phillips claimed Second Prize with her short story "Driving Lessons." Finally, NCWN trustee Alice Osborn received an Honorable Mention for her poem, "Tax Season Tuesday."

Hats Off! to Michael K. Brantley whose second book, Galvanized: The Odyssey of a Reluctant Carolina Confederate, is out May 1 from Potomac Books (University of Nebraska Press). It's the story of Michael's great-great-grandfather, who served in both the Confederate and Union armies, walked halfway across the country, and was involved in a bizarre hometown murder after the war. It's also about North Carolina during the Civil War and how the state was different than most other Southern states.


Hats Off! to Jenny Bates whose new poem, "Patience Not Panic," will be featured in an upcoming issue of As It Ought To Be Magazine, a publication committed to showcasing original and challenging perspectives and serving as a platform for established and emerging voices.
