CityLit Stage

Since 2004, CityLit Project (CLP) has worked to build and connect a community of avid readers and writers across Maryland through a wide range of programs, creating opportunities for youth and diverse audiences to embrace the written word. CityLit nurtures the culture of literature, and creates enthusiasm for literary arts to make it as pronounced and celebrated as the performing and visual arts. Two signature events define CLP, the CityLit Stage in partnership with the Baltimore Book Festival each fall, and the day long CityLit Festival each spring, which, once again, won a Best of Baltimore Award for 2017. CityLit Press further extends CLP's mission by connecting writers with readers, and by providing a venue for writers who might otherwise be overlooked by larger publishers due to the subject matter or regional focus of their projects. CityLit Project makes every effort to grow a larger, more informed and cohesive literary community. CityLit Project thanks our sponsor Insight180 Brand Consulting & Design, “where creative and strategic come together” - a woman-owned graphic design company in Ellicott City that withstood the storm of 2016 - for shining their light on us.
