Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose poems "Ancestral Calls" and "Snake Pit" have been published in the 2019 Summer Poetry Quarterly. Her poem "Lazy Summer Day" appeared in issue #349 of The Weekly Avocet (August 11, 2019). Her poem "Waning Time" appeared in the online journal Twist in Time Literary Magazine (September 1, 2019). Her skinny poem "Hour Glass" has been selected for "the first formal anthology of its kind that documents the form" (Truth Thomas, founder and editor). The anthology is scheduled to be released in late November.


Hats Off! to Cindy Brookshire whose short story "The Oyster House" took First Place in the Short Story Contest sponsored by Labrar Coffee in Goldsboro. Voters chose Brookshire's story from among a short list of five finalists. There was a 500-word maximum. Brookshire wins a $50 gift card and a Labrar Coffee t-shirt.


Hats Off! to Benjamin Cutler, the NCWN Regional Rep for Swain County in Western NC, who has been awarded the 2019 Susan Laughter Meyers Poetry Fellowship at the Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities in Southern Pines.
