Taking Flight: 2012 is Winston-Salem Writers’ second anthology and includes the seventeen winners of the three open contests for 2012: Anthology, 10-Minute Play, and Essay. All entries were judged blind by experts living in the North Carolina Piedmont: Malaika King Albrecht for Poetry; Andrea Brill for Creative Nonfiction; Sheryl Monks for Short Story; and Chris Roerden for Flash Fiction; Robert Moyer and Grace Ellis for the 10-Minute Play; and Carol Roan and Susan Williamson for the Essay.
The Internet dating eponym of Robin Chalkley’s “Gotta Be Bobby G.” finds himself a suspect; Robert Vorsteg’s “Longevity of Transient Things” evokes the delicacy of dusting snow; a hospice nurse discovers a comforting presence in Kimberly Condon’s “Approaching Death”; a young girl spends a roller-coaster day with her grandmother in “Clara,” by Barbara Engler Buskirk. On the evening of its first reading, Charles “LC” Fiore’s “The Pit” was described as “the dyslexic agnostic’s dilemma: is there a dog?”
A few copies of our 2011 Anthology are still available – at only $5
Winston-Salem today bursts with new life in its hospitals, its science parks, its colleges, its arts shops and galleries and its bustling downtown evenings; and yet bears witness to its long history. Taking Flight, Winston-Salem in Prose and Poetry, celebrates the city from its 1750’s Moravian settlers to its 2010 ballpark, and features the winners of the Winston-Salem Writers’ 2011 Contest – an open contest judged by Joseph Mills, Ginger Hendricks, Leigh Somerville, Anna Fields and Emily-Sarah Lineback.
First Place winners were Robin Chalkley (Flash Fiction), Arthur Hondros (Creative Nonfiction and Overall Winner) and Claude Limoges (Poetry and Short Story). Other winners included are Barbara Engler Buskirk, Bonnie Davis, David Hill, John Korzen, Tony R. Lindsay, Kathy H. Mendenhall, Steve Mitchell, Ray Morrison, Bill Pfefferkorn and Jennifer L. Stevenson.
