Here’s an upcoming event of note:
What: Come meet the authors and join a discussion of the challenges women writers face in the Washington area, balancing family and financial commitments and writing against the grain of Washington's "Politics and History" image. "ELECTRIC GRACE Still More Fiction by Washington Area Women" is an anthology of 42 short stories from a spectrum of new and established writers, edited by longtime Washington area writing instructor, poet, Gargoyle Magazine editor and small press publisher Richard Peabody.
Who: co-sponsored by Paycock Press and the Washington Chapter of WNBA (Women's National Book Association), a nonprofit professional organization for women and men in publishing and allied fields, now celebrating its 90th Anniversary, whose Washington DC Chapter was founded in 1978.
Why: For Women's History Month, honor local women writers in the "here and now."
Authors: Jody Lannen Brady, Laura Brylawski-Miller, Mary Katya Doroshenk, Corrine Zappia Gormont, Catherine Harnett, Sheryl Stein, Julia Thomas, NC Weil, and Mary-Sherman Willis
