Words on Water is a collection of 28 works of short fiction, prose and poetry from nine award-winning Middle Tennessee writers whose talents include fiction, memoir and poetry, spanning 18 published books.

This is the second anthology produced by Harpeth River Writers, following By Blood or by Marriage that was published in 2015. The Harpeth River Writers included in Words on Water are Sandy Ward Bell, Suzanne Webb Brunson, Catherine Riddle Caffey, John Neely Davis, Micki Fuhrman, Catherine Moore, Michael J. Tucker, Tom Wood and Bill Woods. Ruth Lebovitz is a former member of the collective and local author Kathy Rhodes recently joined Harpeth River Writers.
