The Frostburg State University Center for Creative Writing, in partnership with the Allegany County Library System, is excited to announce that the fifth annual Western Maryland Small and Regional Press Festival is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 15, from 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., at Main Street, Frostburg. The event brings together editors and publishers with writers and educators of the local community. Panel discussions and roundtable sessions include topics on various creative genres, DIY publishing, self-publishing, promotion and marketing, writing local, and reading and writing online.
I’ll be attending along with my “Many Genres” co-editor, Heidi Ruby Miller, and alongside publishers Headline Books and 100 Jolts publisher Raw Dog Screaming Press. I’m told I’ll be on a few panels, like one on “Horror” at 11:30am and one on “Publishing Basics” at 12:30. Free and open to the public — come on by!
