The literature community in Atlanta is quickly growing. While there are plenty of resources for writers, coming across LitMore made me realize that there is definitely more that Atlanta can do. In Baltimore, LitMore has created real life, physical spaces for writers to create work and connections. Lucky for us, the brilliant minds behind LitMore took over the @actualpants Instagram last week. Take a look.
LitMore recognizes writing is a lonely business. While solitude is necessary to the creative process, writers also need each other’s company for fellowship, support, and knowledge-sharing. Online writing communities and courses are wonderful but meeting IRL–in real life–is necessary too. Face-to-face meetings offer an antidote to our increasingly fractured and virtual world.
LitMore provides a physical space, including the LitMore Poetry Library (https://litmorepoetrylibrary.wordpress.com/) where writers, readers and audience can come together for workshops, readings, launch parties, multi-media presentations–whatever your imagination can come up with! Our supportive staff helps organizers set up and promote their events. We engage in ways to act as an incubator for new literary arts endeavors, provide internship opportunities and professional experience for writers, and serve our larger community of Baltimore City.
