On October 23rd, we have one more reader: David Belz, familiar to many Baltimoreans as a columnist and essayist. His latest gig was at the Examiner, where he authored a column, at least until the paper itself folded. Most recently, he is celebrating the publication of his first (and latest) collection of essays, entitled White Asparagus.
D.R. Belz has been writing professionally for more than thirty years. His essays, poetry, and fiction have appeared in such publications as The Baltimore Examiner, The Baltimore Sun, The Evening Sun, The City Paper, The Southern Literary Messenger, The Oregon Review, The Antietam Review, The MacGuffin, and The Cynic. He graduated from Loyola College with a B.A. degree in English and Creative Writing and earned a master’s degree in the Great Books from St. John’s College in Annapolis. He has taught writing since 1977. An anthology of his work, White Asparagus, was published by Apprentice House.
