7/22/13: "50 Women to Watch" in Baltimore Sun Magazine

Thrilled to be included in The Baltimore Sun magazine's "50 Women to Watch, which will be on newsstands this weekend in Baltimore. For a sneak peek, you can read the online profile and Q&A online also.

From the article: "Jen Michalski is a gathering-in kind of person, a let's-talk-about-this-over-good-food-and-drink kind of person, a red-headed, curly-haired dynamo who's done as much as anyone to create Charm City's vibrant literary community."
