Find Your Perfect Literary Match at the CityLit Fest

The 13th annual CityLit Festival takes place this Friday and Saturday. Headliners include Claudia Rankine, E. Ethelbert Miller, and Paul Lisicky, Stanley Plumly, Susan Muaddi Jarraj, Kathy Flann, Amber Sparks, Laura Shovan, Reggie Harris, Elisabeth Dahl, Jill Coupe, Shirley Brewer, and many more.

I’ll be participating on Saturday, April 16 as part of the @ CityLit Speed session. The event includes two hours of “speed dating” with literary magazines, small presses, and reading series. Bring your best writing sample along and share for five or 10 minutes with us to find your perfect literary match. Is your work suited for this literary journal, that press, or one of the area’s popular reading series?

I’ll be representing the popular Lit and Art reading series, so if you’ve always wanted to be considered as a featured reader at the series, be sure to stop by.
