A new literary magazine is debuting in this area tomorrow. The Newtowner "is a first-of-its-kind quarterly arts and literary magazine featuring fiction, poetry, memoir, essays and features celebrating local literary, visual and performing artists."
Read about The Newtowner at newtownermagazine.homestead.com ; they are also on Facebook.
The Newtowner official launch and reception are on Saturday, Dec 11, 2010, at the C.H. Booth Library Conference Room, 25 Main St, Newtown, CT, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Meet the first issue's featured poets, authors and artists.
I met one of the editors recently, and she requested that I encourage you to submit to The Newtowner -- they are looking for submissions for the next issue (creative nonfiction, poetry, fiction, artwork and photography)!
