The new year, 2010 (two thousand and ten, that's how we have decided to say it), brings another slate of terrific literary arts programs to the area. In addition to annual favorites like CityLit Festival in April, CityLit Stage in September, and another academic year of CityLit Teens this fall, new programs abound for the public, new workshops and professional development opportunities roll out for writers, and CityLit Press makes its debut.
