Hats Off! to Tina Barr, founder and co-editor of The Shining Rock Poetry Anthology & Book Review, whose latest Issue 9—a double issue!—is out now. The anthology includes "The Lure of the Leopard," an essay by Valerie Nieman, and a review of Val's novel-in-poems, The Leopard Lady: A Life in Verse. Enter the two doorways of the cover and find some respite from the world outside!


Hats Off! to NCWN Vice President of the Board Paul Jones whose poem “Slugs" appears on Vox Poetica. Also, two of his poems appear in South Writ Large: “Beach at Corolla, NC” and “Bee Fall.”


Hats Off! to Meagan Lucas whose debut novel, Songbirds and Stray Dogs (Main Steet Rag, 2019), won the First Novel Category at the Next Generation Indie Book Awards. It also was a finalist in the General Fiction/Novel competition. Songbirds and Stray Dogs is a Southern story, born of sweet tea and the Bible Belt, chow-chow and cornbread, shotguns and porch rocking. But it is also a universal story of escaping the burden of your past and finding yourself at home in a strange land. Meagan is the NCWN Co-Regional Rep for Henderson County.
