About

Writers & Words

was a Baltimore reading series run by local writer Maria C. Goodson & Cija Jefferson. Four writers were featured each month. One in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and the genre-defying “wild card” category which in the past has included a playwright, a scientist, and a children’s book author (and everything in between). Readings were on the second Tuesday of each month, at 7pm at Charmington’s Cafe. Writers & Words’ mission was to connect writers to other writers in the Baltimore literary community and beyond. The series was founded in 2014 by Michelle Junot and Michael B. Tager.
