“On the Shore,” a selection of reflective and sometimes whimsical essays by author George Merrill, will be broadcast bi-weekly on Public Radio Delmarva (WSDL 90.7 FM), starting Friday, December 7, at 6:30 and 8:30 am. The essays reflect his experiences in living 23 years on the Eastern Shore, and of being a priest for fifty-two. George is a parishioner at Trinity Cathedral in Easton.
His essays and photography have appeared in regional and national publications, including The Star Democrat, The Delmarva Quarterly, The Tidewater Times, Chesapeake Bay Magazine, The Delmarva Review, and Journeys, a publication of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors. His essay, “The World Is My Oyster,” was awarded first place in a creative nonfiction competition by the Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild and Delmarva Beach Life magazine. George is now completing a memoir for publication, Traveling Light: A Memoir of Suicide, Spirituality and Survival. He posts articles regularly on his blog: http://georgemerrill.blogspot.com The essays, accompanied by George’s photography, will be posted on the Public Radio Delmarva website at www.publicradiodelmarva.net.
