Literary Liaison for Writer-in-Residence

For more than 28 years the Howard County Poetry & Literature Society (HoCoPoLitSo) has been sponsoring a writer-in-residence at Howard County Public High Schools (12) and Homewood Center. In order to manage this amazing opportunity, a volunteer liaison is engaged to set the schedule and accompany the writer during their visit. Visits, generally 2 per day, take place between October and March during the regular high school day for 40-60 minutes. Classes range from 12-200 depending upon the school. 

Together with the writer, the liaison will create a 5-6 page handout of the writer's work to be forwarded to students prior to the visit. HoCoPoLitSo staff and board members assist as consultants and support visits when liaison is unavailable. A background in literature, education a plus.
