Eric D. Goodman has been writing fiction ever since that third-grade writing assignment turned him onto the craft more than a quarter century ago. Since the start of this century, Eric has been a full-time writer and editor in the Baltimore-DC area. He is actively involved in the literary community. NPR describes him as “a regular on the Baltimore literary scene.”
His work has been published in The Washington Post, The Baltimore Review, On Stage Magazine, Writers Weekly, Travel Insights, Coloquio, To Be Read Aloud, Neck of My Guitar, Federal Voice, and Write Here Write Now. He’s a literary correspondent for Gather and publishes a weekly “Lit Bit at www.gather.com/litbit.
In 2007, his novel in stories, TRACKS, was a semi-finalist in a national novel contest sponsored by Gather, Simon & Schuster and Borders, beating out nearly 3,000 other novels and being read by thousands of readers. Also this year, Eric won third place in the Maryland Writers Association Fiction Contest. And he’s a two-time finalist in Paramount’s Chesterfield Writer’s Film Project, founded by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment.
In May, Eric read from his fiction on National Public Radio’s WYPR; a podcast of his reading is available on their website at this link:
This August, Eric is a featured author in Baltimore’s Authors Showcase at the Canton library. He will read from his published work.
