This Saturday

I'll be participating in the panel: “Making Connections: Networking and the Business of Writing” with Susan Muaddi Darraj, Wendi Kaufman, Carla Spataro and Ron Hogan at 1:45 p.m.


Sponsored by The Baltimore Review, Barrelhouse, and The Potomac Review

Join us on May 5, 2007 at the Writer's Center in Bethesda, Maryland for a different kind of writer's conference. Conversations and Connections will help you get the connections and information you need to take your writing -- and publishing -- to the next level.

Our panelists are experts in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, writing for children, making connections, using the web, marketing, and everything in between. Over 30 literary magazines will be represented.

Your $35 registration fee includes the full day conference, plus face-to-face "speed dating" with literary magazine editors, and a subscription to the lit mag of your choice.

Keynote Speakers: Fiona McCrae (Editor in Chief, Graywolf Press) and Amy Holman

Readers and Performers

Paul Maliszewski’s Letters to the President have appeared in Fence, StoryQuarterly, Unsaid, and other magazines. His writing has also been published in Harper’s, The Paris Review, and the Pushcart Prize antholo gies.

Valzhyna Mort was born in 1981 in Minsk. Her new book of poetry Factory of Tears will come out from Copper Canyon Press. In 2005 she received Gaude Polonia scholarship (Warsaw, Poland) and in 2006 - Liter arisches Colloquium Berlin fellowship (Berlin, Germany). She lives in DC.

Edie Sedgwick is the transgendered reincarnation of a vacuous Warhol Superstar who died of a barbiturate overdose in 1971. Edie was reborn at the dawn of the New Millenium to save the world by singing about celebrities. Armed with a video projector and some bullshit IMovies, she travels the nightclubs of this land called America singing songs that honor the likes of Angelina Jolie, Robert Downey, Jr., and, of course, Martin Sheen.
