Hats Off! to Tom Wood who was interviewed, along with his writing partner, Michael J. Tucker, on Late Last Night Books hosted by Terra Ziporyn. Tom and Mike are both members of Harpeth River Writers. Their short story, "A Night on the Town," about two strangers whose paths cross on a fateful rideshare encounter, is their first collaboration. They previously worked together with seven other authors on the chain story, "The Many Names of Jillyn" that appears in the recent HRW anthology, Words on Water.


Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose flash fiction, "Wilted," went live July 1 at The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature. Her haiku beginning "fallen mockingbird" was published in Issue 65 of Haiku Journal. "Powerful Sculptors," a Creative Nonfiction piece, was published online at Quail Bell Magazine on June 27. Her poem, "Floral Kaleidoscope" appears in the print issue of the 2020 Summer Avocet.


Hats Off! to Tom Wood whose article "Days of Slumber," about the reopening of the Nashville Speedway, appeared in last week's Nashville Ledger. The Nashville Speedway was shuttered in 2011, but in June, 2021, will host a NASCAR Cup Series race for the first time since 1984 at the old Nashville Fairgrounds short track. Charlotte author Rick Helms, an avid motorsports fan and a former driver himself who now competes in Simracing—racing cars online using computers and realistic wheels and pedals—is interviewed in the story.
