July 31 edition of Lit & Art at the Watermark is a celebration of the fifth
anniversary of Life in Me Like Grass on
Fire, an anthology of Maryland poets.
2011, the Maryland Writer’s Association published an anthology titled Life in Me Like Grass on Fire containing
poems by over forty Maryland writers on the theme(s) of love. Editor Laura
Shovan claimed then that love could stoke our inspiration, fuel our living, or
turn us to ash. On our fifth anniversary, we are still hot!
