Hats Off! to Suzanne Cottrell whose poem "Precision Pilots," about hummingbirds, was accepted for the Poetry Leaves Project of Waterford Township, Michigan. Her poem will be exhibited May 1-31, 2018, and appear in the Poetry Leaves bound volume. "The purpose of the Poetry Leaves project is to make poetry a part of the everyday lives of Waterford residents and visitors to the Township." The project is similar to North Carolina's Poetry in Plain Sight.

Also, two of her tankas were included in Issue 7 of the Tanka Journal, and her poem "Yet, We Laughed," a poem addressing her personal experience with breast cancer, won The Monthly Lighthearted Poetry Contest #4 on April 30, 2018, sponsored by Angela Poetry Magazine/Wax and Art Magazine.
