I’m happy to announce the publication of the first anthology released by Mars Street Press. It’s a literary journal with stories and essays by my private workshop students and me. Everyone worked so hard to make this book happen. It’s dedicated to my father-in-law, Richard Dale Barrett, who died from COVID-19 in July. My son Travis created the fantastic cover and did the layout. My student, Amelia Dellos, titled it (and took the photo below). If you’re looking for a book to read, or are shopping for the readers on your gift list, or just want to read more about the book, please click here.
Merrill Markoe, author of the graphic memoir, We Saw Scenery, talks with Barbara DeMarco-Barrett about the art, craft, and business of writing. They laugh a lot, too.
