Hats Off! to Tom Wood, author of Vendetta Stone, who was interviewed by the late John Seigenthaler on A Word on Words. The segment aired on Nashville public television. The audio link is available here.


Hats Off! to Susan M. Steadman whose ten-minute play, "The Dress," was chosen for production at the Old Courthouse Theatre in Concord, NC, August 21-23. In "The Dress," Delia, an ecologically minded young woman, seeks the perfect wedding dress at a thrift shop but finds much more when Josh offers his assistance. The competition was for playwrights living in North and South Carolina.


Hats Off! to Terri Kirby Erickson whose poem “Ice Cream Truck” from her new collection, A Lake of Light and Clouds (Press 53), will be read by Garrison Keillor on The Writer's Almanac. Also, U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser chose a poem from this collection to feature in his American Life in Poetry column in 2015, and another poem from this collection, "Red Tractor," will be featured on Verse Daily.
