The Writer's Library
We are pleased to introduce The Writer's Library. It is the largest collection of literary journals and little magazines in the mid-Atlantic region. Housed in the Lewes Public Library, many issues are available via interlibrary loan through the Delaware Library Catalog. Anyone in Delaware with a library card can have access to this new collection.
Writers and those interested can find the journals along the wall next to the Delaware Room. Writers may also feel free to access the Delaware Room as a quiet space for writing, reflecting and reading the journals.
Those issues highlighted are also available for checkout through the online catalog. The Writer's Library is a work in progress and new issues are cataloged on a regular basis.
Brief History of The Writer's Library
The Writer's Library is built to answer editor's constant admonition, "please read our journal before you submit your work". It has been collected to help Delaware authors: 1. Become familiar with a wider range of literary journals 2. Have the opportunity to review and better understand the preferred style, content, form, bias, language and quality of work of a particular journal 3. Improve their chances of getting published.
Now in collaboration with the Lewes Public Library, the Writer's Library is founded, collected and led by poet, Gary Hanna. This is a cooperative venture for all Delaware writers and those interested in reading and appreciating quality contemporary fiction. If you have additional journal titles or newer issues, we would be delighted to receive donations. Please contact Kristen Gramer or Gary Hanna at the library, 645-2733, for additional information.
