Join Salamander Magazine for a reading by some of its most recent contributors: Ciaran Berry, Leslie McGrath, and Maggie Dietz. This group comes together to celebrate a magazine whose mission, after two decades, remains singular and dynamic: “to publish a generation of writers reaching artistic maturity and deserving of a wider audience alongside new work by established writers.” Each of these readers, a serious practitioner of the craft, adds something to the developing creative conversation between Salamander contributors, past and present.
