Installation Ceremony of North Carolina Poet Laureate Shelby Stephenson

Our managing editor, Elizabeth Akin Stelling was proud to be in attendance at the ceremony at the North Carolina State Capitol for Shelby Stephenson. After a couple years of communication via e-mail with Shelby she was glad to finally meet him in person. She also met his family, area poets (include some we have published in our anthologies), and the NC Governor, Pat McCrory.
