Our Maenad reading and fundraiser was a huge success! We'd like to extend our gratitude to everyone who contributed through donations, and the Angel donors who purchased tickets for others to attend. Our Maenad fellows read their work to a packed house, and we witnessed the power of true community in action.
We were honored to have guest readers Tony Norman, Damon Young, and Davon Magwood read three pieces of work from our students at SCI Pittsburgh. Colorful broadsides of work from the Maenads and our SCI students were on display and available for purchase. Our readers stood in front of artwork by Lindsey Peck, and photography from Mark Perrot and Teake Zuidema.
What a great way to end the first year of our Maenad Fellowship. We look forward to continuing our efforts to build a supportive community for writers facing addiction and incarceration.
