Hats Off! to Lee Zacharias who was interviewed by Abigail DeWitt in Southern Literary Review. Lee's new novel is What a Wonderful World this Could Be (Madville Publishing, 2021). "I didn’t like the novels I had read about the ’60s," Lee says. "They seemed either short-sighted or to rely too heavily on signs of the time—the soundtrack, bellbottoms, peace signs, and tie-dye—to tell the story. I was more interested factual accounts and personal experience, even when my attitude differed greatly from the implied views of the authors."


Hats Off! to Karen Jones whose poem "Miss You Boo" won First Place in Poetry Soup's I Miss I Reminisce contest. Also, her poem "Homeless Today Car-less Soon" is a semi-finalist in Poetry Nation's contest, final results TBD!


Hats Off! to Vice President of the NCWN Board of Trustees Paul Jones whose poem "Sndbrg" appears in The Asses of Parnassus: Paul makes Carl Sandburg’s short poem "Fog" shorter as a 575 mono rhyme. Also, Silver Birch Press kicks off their Lawrence Ferlinghetti tribute titled “I Am Still Waiting” with his poem “Still Waters,” a five syllable per line poem.
