Her Mark 2003 Release Party & Reading - 10/20/02
Her Mark 2003
Her Mark 2003 Datebook
Contributing Her Mark 2003 artists and poets, their friends, family and fans gathered from all corners of the country to celebrate the publication of WMG's third annual Her Mark Datebook on Sunday, October 20, 2002. Her Mark seemed to come alive as poets read their work to a full and enthusiastic house. An added bonus this year was seeing the datebook artwork on display in the Gallery. A warm thanks to all who attended and made this an especially festive occasion! Also, special thanks to our designer, Jeanne Nemcek of 4439 Design for her efforts and talents. Forty artists and poets from across the country (and Wales!) are featured in this year's HER MARK 2003 datebook.
