Since it began in 1990, the Connections Literary Series program has featured writers such as National Book Award winners Tim O’Brien and Robert Stone, Pulitzer Prize-winning poets Yusef Komunyakaa and Henry Taylor, and Maryland Poet Laureates Lucille Clifton and Michael Glaser. Connections readings offer the Southern Maryland community a chance to hear from and meet established and emerging local writers up-close-and-personal.

Connections Magazine is a regional literary journal published twice a year that features the very best poems, stories, artwork, and photography of Southern Maryland. Also included in each issue is featured material from visiting writers. Publication readings take place in December and May each year.

By submitting your work to Connections, you indicate your consent for the magazine to publish that work in a print journal and on the college’s website. Please inform the college if your work is accepted elsewhere. Submissions must contain name, address, phone number, and a brief biographical statement.
