I am happy to announce the date, time, and place for my Delaware Division of the Arts’ literary reading.
DDoA Fellowship Readings – April 3, 2016
My fellow DDoA fellowship recipient, poet Maggie Rowe, and I will share stories and poetry at the Judge Morris Estate, White Clay Creek Park in Newark, on Sunday, April 3, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. We will host a reception in the lovely estate dining area after the reading.
Maggie Rowe is a writer, editor, and poetry teacher. She has been leading weekly poetry workshops for Cancer Support Community Delaware since 2006. Her poetry appeared last year in The Sun magazine, and three of her poems were shortlisted for the 2015 Irish Times Hennessey Award. In 2004, she received a Delaware Division of the Arts Emerging Professional Fellowship in Poetry. In 2016, she was awarded an Individual Artist Fellowship in Poetry as an Established Professional. Originally from the U.K., she has lived in Delaware for 32 years.
My fellowship is a Masters in Literature – Fiction. I will be reading from my IAF project, a novel with a dual setting in Georgia in the 1980s and contemporary Delaware.
Maggie and I are excited to share our work in this beautiful and historic setting, and we appreciate the support from the Delaware Division of the Arts through its artist fellowship program.*
We hope you will join us!
