Charm City Events

Some goings on up the road in Baltimore, as reported by CityLit Project:

WORKSHOPS: New "Write Here, Write Now" workshops start on May 7 and May 12 as we explore the art of short story/flash fiction and erotica. Both workshops take place at Creative Alliance. Complete information, as well as a link to registration, can be found here.

MWA CONFERENCE: The annual Spring "must do" for writers convenes at the 21st Maryland Writers' Association Conference on May 9. The wonderful line-up covers an array of writing genres and issues, plus there will be agents! Yours truly will deliver a session on "The Publishing Matrix," which covers options and expectations for aspiring authors so that they have the most rewarding experience possible.

SMARTISH PACE FANDANGO: The fine folks at Smartish Pace announce the next in what are becoming fantastic shin-digs: their new issue release parties. May 15, 8pm, location TBA. Just $10 gets your foot in the door, a magazine in your hand, and "all the merriment you can stomach." Readings by Matt Anserello, Lucy Biederman, Maggie Glover, Reginald Harris, Alex Irvine, Aaron Poochigian, and Mark Wisniewski. Music by Pree and others.


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
