The Baltimore Review

BookCover-2013-Front_sm

The summer issue of The Baltimore Review just came out, including my story “Burnt,” a short (short) piece of creative nonfiction about the rowhouse across from us on Portugal street whose untimely demise coincided with one of our first weekends away.

The Baltimore Review was founded by Barbara Westwood Diehl in 1996 as a literary journal publishing short stories and poems, with a mission to showcase the best writing from the Baltimore area and beyond. Since its founding, the journal has grown to become a nationally distributed publication, and in 2004, an independent nonprofit organization. Susan Muaddi Darraj led the journal from 2003 to 2010, expanding contributions to include creative nonfiction and interviews; in 2011, Diehl resumed leadership of the journal, overseeing its 2012 transformation into a quarterly, online literary publication.

It’s an honor to be included in a home-turf publication that showcases so many great writers! I especially like the way the online format includes audio and image as well as text.
