Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

The Soul Tree

Hello,

I'm happy to join up in this list. I have a book coming out soon (finally?) from Grateful Steps, a rather remarkable indie press here in Asheville. It's a photography and poetry book. You can see pagespreads at www.fletchpix.com (click on The Soul Tree or you can visit my website (thehealingseed.com) and go to the final page. It will take you there. The poems are the product of a few years' reading of the sacred texts, from Rig Veda to Tao te Ching to the Bible and additional (lots of additional) reading of Cambell, Jung and such. The poems, however, are small.

Wordfest is coming up April 30-May 3. www.ashevillewordfest.org. It's an amazing beast of a festival--all poetry, all free.

Thanks, Ron for the invite. Thanks, Marijo for the nudge. xo Laura

Hi Laura,
I wanted to extend an invitation to you to contribute to an anthology that Celia Miles and I are compiling on the theme of the clothes women wear.

(I enjoyed talking with you at Mountain Lore a few weeks ago.)

You might have seen our Christmas anthology this past year. We had poetry from Glenis Redmond, Pat Riviere-Seel, MariJo Moore, Julia Nunnally Duncan, etc.

We ask that you put it in Word doc., 12pt type, Times New Roman. Deadline is May 2. Contributors receive a free copy and may buy other copies at reduced price. And we ask to send a 50-word bio. with your submission
Would love to hear from you.

Last year Celia threw a party at her clubhouse for all contributors--and it was fun to hear the contributors read their own stories/essays/poems at Accent on Books. We also had signings at Malaprop's, Mountain Made in Grove Arcade, etc.
Thanks, Nancy Dillingham
