Touchstone Gallery presents a Maryland Writers' Association poetry reading on Friday, July 22, 2011. The program, which will include refreshments, runs from 6:30 to 8 pm. The reading will feature several writers whose publications range from A Little Breast Music to The Hartford Review. As Gregg Wilhelm, Executive Director of the CityLit Project, describes it, “Life in Me Like Grass on Fire is the confluence into which the many streams of love flow. Ride the current of these words through rapids and still waters to places new yet familiar.”
For more than twenty years, the Maryland Writers’ Association has nurtured and supported the Maryland literary arts community. In honor of that tradition, select MWA members deliver a heartfelt introduction to the region’s writing community in MWA Books’ second anthology, Life in Me Like Grass on Fire, reflections on love. The anthology is divided into several sections, ranging from “first love, lost love” to “love as we age.”
The anthology features 50 poets, edited by Laura Shovan, a Maryland State Arts Council Artist-in-Education and editor of the art and literary journal, Little Patuxent Review. The poets’ other credentials range from those just embarking on their literary careers to those with impressive publication lists.
Maryland Writers’ Association is a voluntary, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the art, business, and craft of writing. For more information, please visit www.marylandwriters.org
