New Lines from the Old Line State in the Media
Here's what people are saying about MWA's debut anthology New Lines from the Old Line State, which features thirty-six captivating pieces of literature from twenty-nine authors:

"Rather than our motto -- Maryland, America in miniature -- it is the world in miniature through fiction (15 selections), poetry (9) and memoir (7), the three divisions of the anthology. It's a good mixture. Bottom line: New Lines from the Old Line State is a mostly enjoyable read. Our state's literary health seems good and vibrant. I look forward to the next chapter of the Maryland Writers' Association."
"Whether the reader is seeking strong imagery, good storytelling, or a gripping mystery, there is something in these pages to please a variety of interests."
"...Featuring 29 Maryland authors, the anthology contains some can't-be-missed work...."
