By the time you read this, associate editor Jessie Seigel will have read her fiction as part of the Inner Loop Reading Series at Johnny Pistolas.

And associate editor Mike Maggio reports that his novel,The Wizard and the White House, was reviewed favorably by Foreword Reviews this winter.

Finally, PR technology editor Joanna Howard coordinated last Friday’s A Splendid Wake celebration of poets past and present in the DC area.  Read Karren Alenier’s post all about it on the blog.
