MIDCOAST — What do you have to say? “BestLit Review” is seeking local literary gems; Midcoast Maine-based authors to present a 10-minute performance of their noteworthy, unique, strong and sparkling fiction/non-fiction essay/short story/play or script excerpt; any genre except poetry. Writing workshops will be offered over the course of the summer at Camden Public Library, 55 Main St. The top 10 author selections will be published in the “2019 Mid-Coast Maine BestLit Review” and presented at a book release/author showcase in early fall. This is an opportunity to potentially be presented to the Midcoast Maine literary community at a literary event and published in an annual literary compilation.

The “2018 Mid-Coast Maine BestLit Review” compilation included: Kit Remsen Aroneau, Vicki Doudera, Amy Lorry, Jeffry Slack, Lee Heffner, Richard Ogle, David Dayhoff, Eric Gabrielsen, Sandra Sylvester and Isabel Tutaine. They also read their words at a sold-out book release/performance showcase.

Interested participants should send a cover letter and story/essay to BestLit Review, P.O. Box 6, Camden, ME 04843. For more information, contact Eva Morris at (772) 217-7070 or bestlitreview@outlook.com.

“BestLit Review” organizer Eva Morris is a nine-time published author, mainly of short story collections; most notably through Blue Moon Books. She has written numerous pieces that feature or are featured in: Simon and Shuster’s “Best American” anthology; “Diary of a RoadBabe,” a Penthouse-commissioned comic-strip series; Hunter S. Thompson’s last interview; the Gambino family and compilations exclusively for “Smoky and the Bandit”-style truck drivers. Morris also showcased local authors in Memphis’ “ChickLit Review.”
