Two Stories in The Light Ekphrastic


Two of my stories have been published in the current issue of the literary journal, The Light Ekphrastic. What’s more, each story is paired with a work by artist William Brown and will be rotating on the LED Art Billboard next to Baltimore’s Penn Station next week.

I submitted an excerpt from Tracks: A Novel in Stories called “Places.” William Brown was inspired to create a painting based on the story.

William Brown submitted a painting called “Pain and Wisdom.” I wrote the story “Wisdom and Pain” inspired by his artwork.

The Baltimore Ekphrasic Project is collaboration between LED Baltimore and The Light Ekphrastic.  Baltimore-area writers and artists were chosen to create new work inspired by the work of randomly selected partners. The art and readings were presented at a launch party last week when all of the stories and artworks were presented without advertising on the LED Billboard.

March Forward to Lit and Art at the Watermark

The next event in the 2015 Lit and Art Reading Series takes place on Sunday, March 29 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Watermark, 100 S. Charles Street, right across from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.


For the January event, our featured talent includes Earl Crown, Dan Cuddy, Christopher T. George, Ian Hochberg, Michael M. Hughes, and Joseph Young. Goodloe Byron will share musical interludes. Manzar’s original art will be on display. And YOU should bring five minutes of your own work to share during open mic! To hold it all together, we’ll enjoy wine, refreshments, and conversation among like-minded artists.


Like all Lit and Art events, it is free and open to the public. So come along and bring some friends!


Hosted by Baltimore authors Nitin Jagdish and Eric D. Goodman, the events are casual and meant to foster the local literary community. In fact, we encourage attendees to bring about five minutes of their own work to share during open mic!

Started in 2007 at The Watermark Gallery, the Lit & Art Reading Series showcases local, national, and international talent—fiction, poetry, non-fiction, memoir, original art, live music—all topped off with wine, refreshments, and conversation.

Join us and find out why Lit and Art has been called the best excuse to get lit on a Sunday afternoon in Baltimore!
