Local Authors


Local Authors

Joyful Studio is committed to highlighting local authors in meaningful ways through events at the studio and also, through Author’s Row, which takes place during the annual Young Artist Market (YAM) on 3rd Saturdays in June, July and August in La Plata, Maryland.

Author’s Row is a local event series in which authors connect with readers in Southern Maryland. Author’s Row provides an opportunity for authors to engage readers in a relaxed, family-friendly environment.  

Author Meet-up

Joyful Studio is passionate about providing a platform for authors to creatively connect, encourage and learn from one another. This is an informal group for writers, authors and/or anyone looking for a creative outlet in the local community.  For 1 hour, creatives meet, exchange ideas, share details about their work and/or even enjoy quiet brainstorming. 

This is a monthly session, open to everyone. Due to limited seating, advance registration is required.
