Hats Off! to Wim Coleman who has lots of activity coming up this summer. His poem “Ecce Nietzsche” is scheduled for publication in Vita Brevis on Tuesday, June 4. From June 5-8, his short play “Talk to the Hand” will be performed in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for the Living on the Edge: Emergence 10-Minute play festival. And five of his poems will appear in the July, 2019, issue of the Adelaide Literary Magazine in both printed and digital editions and on the publication’s website.

 

Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose short, short story, "Her Portrait," will be published by The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature in 2020. Eight of her poems appear in the May issues of The Weekly Avocet. Her haiku beginning "Spring rains replenish..." appears in Issue #335 (May 5, 2019). Her Saving Mother Earth Poem ending with "Irreversible damage" and her haiku beginning "Spring peepers emerge..." appear in Issue #336 (May 12, 2019). Three of her haiku appeared in Issue #337 (May 19, 2019). The first begins "Daffodils trumpet," the second begins "Cherry blossoms bloom," and the third begins "Forest green leaves eager to emerge." Her poem "Solitary Walk" and her haiku beginning "Ground begins to thaw..." appear in Issue #338 (May 26, 2019).

 

Hats Off! to Les Brown whose short story "The Poker Game" took Third Place in the 2019 Elizabeth Simpson Smith Short Story Contest sponsored by the Charlotte Writers' Club. "Here is an author who is a master of dialogue," said final judge Robert Inman. "The game itself is but a device to treat the reader to an intimate look at four old curmudgeons-past their prime but continuing to hang on to their abiding relationship. As a reader, I loved them despite the notion to smack each one in the head." Les wins $50.
