Insider's Advice on 'Getting Published' at Washington College

Chestertown, MD — Gregg Wilhelm, executive director of Baltimore CityLit, will present "Getting Published" at Washington College's Rose O'Neill Literary House on Thursday, April 3, at 4:30 p.m.

Wilhelm has been in the book business for about 15 years as an editor, publisher, marketer and production manager for various presses. He has worked for Johns Hopkins University Press, Tidewater Publishers and Woodholme House Publishers, which he founded in 1996.

In 2001 he started a consulting business, Bookwise Associates, then in 2004 a nonprofit literary arts organization, CityLit Project.

CityLit Project nurtures the culture of literature through a comprehensive approach that improves writers, supports publishers, showcases authors, encourages readers, publishes books, and entertains and educates the public, thus fostering a community that values literature from the first stroke of the pen to the last chapter the story.
