I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

I don't know if this is true for my fellow writers, but proofing can be the most difficult part of the process.  I received the ARC today for October's Sam Blackman Mystery and will begin the last review for typos or formatting errors that have eluded my editor, my copy editor, and myself.  Amazing that there is always something that the brain "fixes" and we don't see.Hope springs eternal that the October release will be typo-free.  The mystery is set against the historic backdrop of Black…See More

I don't just mean the writing but the reading of so many others.I don't know how people do it all and have any other life.Now I've tried Facebook, I'm told we need a Facebook page for Netwest.…See More

Netwest to be featured in article in Smoky Mountain News

I was interviewed by Christi of A & E department of Smoky Mountain News for an article to be published in this Wednesday's newspaper. Those of you who live in Haywood, Jackson, Macon and Swain counties should look for it.

A free lance writer asked for an interview for WNC magazine and this article about my writing class at John C. Campbell Folk School in January is her main topic.

For years we've worked to get out the news about NCWN West but using newspapers in western NC to publicize our events was difficult. Many of the weekly papers will not print anything that does not pertain to their county. A Netwest event held in Macon county would get no press in Clay or Cherokee counties.

Netwest has approximately 80 members throughout 9 NC counties south west of Asheville. Any member of NCWN who lives in this area automatically becomes a member of Netwest.
We look forward to more writers throughout the area becoming aware of Netwest and what this writing group can do for the literary community in western NC.
