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.


Hats Off! to those poets whose poems are featured for Poetry in Plain Sight - June, 2019. Russell Colver of Hillsborough (“I Abandoned the Dogs”); Joanne Durham of Kure Beach ("Words”); John Haugh of Greensboro (“big bright yellow sun”); and Valerie Nieman of Greensboro (“I Could Take As Omens”). Poetry in Plain Sight is a statewide poetry initiative presented by the Winston-Salem Writers. These poems will be displayed on posters in street-visible locations throughout arts districts and downtown areas in Winston-Salem and in the expansion cities, New Bern and Waynesville.
