Literary Road Trip

Hello everyone! I've joined the fun and will be hosting local authors and poets here on the blog from the Maryland and Washington, D.C., area as part of GalleySmith's project, The Literary Road Trip.

Participants do not have to reside only in the United States; this is a global project. All you have to do is leave a comment on The Literary Road Trip page with your state, Canadian province, or country. Come join the fun.

I'm shooting for one post per month as a regular feature here, but I could bump up the frequency as it becomes more routine here on the blog.

Publishers and Publicists: Please feel free to suggest (savvyverseandwit AT gmail DOT com) Maryland and D.C. authors and poets for me to showcase, as well as books they have written--either new publications or those from the backlist.

Authors & Poets: Email me (savvyverseandwit AT gmail DOT com) with your information and we'll start up a conversation about you, your work, and whatever else you want to discuss as a feature in The Literary Road Trip project.

Welcome! I'm excited you're going to join me and other participants on the trip!

As you add different posts please don't forget to add a link to the Mr. Linky on the Literary Road Trip page on my blog so I can be sure to showcase it on my weekly Road Map posting.

Safe journey, I'm interested to learn more about Maryland and DC authors.
