The Indie Lit Festival was definitely the place to be this weekend! I met some fabulous writers from Pittsburgh, including Margaret Bashaar, editor of Hyacinth Girl Press, Deena November, author of Dick Wad, and Christine Stroud, assistant editor of Autumn House Press. I also met Emily Rich, Laura Shovan, and others from the Little Patuxent Review. I heard some incredible bluegrass at Dante’s Bar in Frostburg from Mama Korn and other bands. The weather kept many folks at home, but it was an excellent event with a wide variety of indie presses, some fascinating panel discussions, and good networking opportunities. Thanks much to Michelle Yost and Gerry LaFemina for organizing.
