Sheila McMullin: Writing, Editing, Community


This Saturday, September 27, from 6:00pm-8:00pm I will be reading at the Waterbear Reading Series at One More Page Books, 2200 N Westmoreland Street #101 Arlington, VA 22213, hosted by the terrific An Tran!

Please join me for a lovely evening of books, poetry, fiction, and wine (and a few poetry postcards I’ve made to give as gifts to you!) with:

Nathan Leslie is the author of six books of short fiction, one book of poetry and editor of two anthologies. He is the fiction editor for Pedestal Magazine and was the series editor for Best of the Web. He lives in Northern Virginia, and teaches at Northern Virginia Community College.

“The Waterbear Reading Series is a summer reading series in Arlington, VA, held monthly. Our aim is to help cultivate the literary community in Northern Virginia. Established, emerging and student writers share the same stage at the Waterbear and, with some exceptions, we seek to bring together and showcase local writers. We aim to create connections, foster a supportive literary community and to engage Northern Virginia into the greater culture of the Mid-Atlantic’s literary scene. We are hosted by the kind folks at One More Page Books.”
