Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose five poems: "Ghost Harbingers," "Out of Time," "Celestial Clutter," "Worm-ridden Republic," and "Danger Below" were published online at Literary Yard (Sept. 17, 2020). Also, her poem "Secluded Berries" was published in issue #404 of The Weekly Avocet (August 30, 2020).


Hats Off! to Joseph Bathanti who was interviewed on Southern Literary Review. Also featured: an excerpt from his novel Coventry, originally published by Novello Festival Press in 2006 and now re-released by Livingston Press, based at the University of West Alabama. "I’m definitely preoccupied with the notion of grace–unearned and undeserved favor that God bestows upon us," Bathanti says. "Some might call it luck. Perhaps, these days, we might even term it privilege. At any rate, the moment I stepped on a prison yard for the first time, I saw versions of myself."


Hats Off! to Sylvia Freeman who won Second Place in the Chesterton Riverarts Poetry Contest for her poem "Summer Shower." Also, she has two poems coming in September's Muddy River Poetry Review.
