Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose personal narrative,"Unexpected Visitors," about Palo Duro Canyon State Park near Amarillo, TX, is posted on Parks and Points. Read it to find out who the unexpected visitors were. Suzanne's poem, "Summer Lions," will be included in the print issue of the 2019 Summer Avocet, a journal of nature poems. In 2020, "Her Portrait," a flash fiction piece, will be published in The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature, and her poetry chapbook, Gifts of the Seasons, Autumn and Winter, will be published by Kelsay Books.


Hats Off! to North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame inductee Wilma Dykeman who is one of two "guardians" of North Carolina's rivers featured in the new documentary, Guardians of Our Troubled Waters, by David Weintraub. Dykeman, who died at age eighty-six in 2006, was a writer, historian and social and environmental activist who famously fought for the protection of the river flowing through the heart of Asheville in her 1955 history book, The French Broad. The documentary premieres June 20 in Hendersonville.


Hats Off! to Tom Wood who did a couple of interviews for the Tennessee Screenwriting Association about the upcoming Script-Com Symposium at Lipscomb University in Nashville, on June 22. The first is with keynote screenwriter James V. Hart (Hook, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Contact, and many others). The second is with Nashville screenwriter/director Bob Giordano and his new horror/thrilller The Odds.
