Help make our holidays merry and bright! Join us for our annual holiday book fair, with readings, book sales, and member activites! Small press publishers, editors of local literary journals, workshop leaders, and staff from The Writer’s Center will be on hand to offer advice and help you select gifts for all the readers in your life, including books, literary journals, and gift certificates for workshops. 

1:00-3:00: We'll kick off the day with a free Open Door Reading with novelist James Han Mattson (The Lost Prayers of Ricky Graves) and poet Lindsey Royce (Bare Hands). More information here.

3:00-6:00: Our holiday book fair will feature local editors of literary journals and presses, as well as local organizations including Delmarva Review, Casa Mariposa Press, Baltimore Review, Plamen Press, Iceland Writers Retreat, Chapters Literary Bookstore, Split this Rock, Beltway Poetry Quarterly, WWPH, and Poet Lore, published by The Writer's Center.

At 4:00, we'll host our second annual Members-Only Editor Speed Dating.
