Wild Violet online literary magazine's 10th anniversary celebration
If you live in the Ardmore, Pennsylvania, area you may be interested in attending the 10th anniversary reading for the online literary magazine Wild Violet, edited by Alyce Wilson. The date is Saturday, October 1, 2011.
The venue is MilkBoy Coffee at 2 E. Lancaster Ave. in Ardmore, an all-ages performing arts venue. Milkboy is popular with students of nearby Bryn Mawr College. The event starts at 8 p.m. (Eastern Time). There will be a $5 cover charge.
Past contributors to the magazine will be scheduled to read from their works and will have the opportunity to sell books and CDs. Wilson is working with MilkBoy to see if visual artists who've contributed to the magazine can present an art show there throughout October.
My short story, “I Did Not Break Up Claire and Jeremy,” appeared in Vol. VII Issue 3 of Wild Violet. Wilson is also planning on releasing a 10th anniversary anthology, in which I hope an abridged version of the story will appear. Claire is a New York "it girl" actress. She's married to Jeremy, an English actor, though they're rapidly growing apart. Claire finds herself falling for utterly non-famous Crystal. Crystal and Jeremy start as rivals, then gradually build an unlikely alliance.
