Second Annual Literary Arts Week October 14-20, 2012


CityLit Project again partners with the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance and the Maryland State Arts Council to present Literary Arts Week, a special series of events during October's Free Fall Baltimore.  The initiative clusters several literary programs into one week to bring awareness to Baltimore's vibrant literary arts scene.

"While there are terrific literary events happening year-round, no collaborative effort quite like this week-long one shines a light so brightly on the city's lit scene," said CityLit executive director Gregg Wilhelm. "It promotes regularly occurring events, new special programs, and even an annual writers' conference."
