Flying V creates theatre that invigorates and inspires people to live life with a greater sense of appreciation and adventure. A gateway drug that bridges the gap between pop culture and high culture, we are dedicated to the creation, development, and production of vibrant original work, offbeat contemporary plays, and performance art inspired by genre fiction and other modern mythologies. By creating work that reflects the intimate struggles of the human condition through vivid, high concept metaphors and artistic vigor we hope to shine a light on the loneliness and isolation that so many feel and create a sense of connection and wonder. We are your Friendly Neighborhood Indie Theatre. Expect Awesome. Be Awesome.
The Gaithersburg Book Festival is a celebration of the written word and its power to enrich the human experience. The festival’s mission is an interest in reading, writing, and literary conversation.

The Writer’s Center has teamed up with Pyramid Atlantic Art Center to offer a new workshop that emphasizes the intersection of writing and print. Pyramid Atlantic’s commitment to building communities that give life to printmaking, papermaking, and the book arts make them the perfect partner for this joint program. Participants will first refine their writing at The Writer’s Center with the aid of an experience workshop instructor, and cap off their intensive workshop with an extended session at Pyramid Atlantic where they will learn the basics of letterpress and have the opportunity to set their words into type.

So your giving makes an immediate impact, and elevates our charities’ capacity to do good – here, where we live.
