John Mark Eberhart Memorial Fund 
Honoring the memory of John Mark Eberhart (1960-2013)


John Mark Eberhart, former book editor of the Kansas City Star as well as a published poet and musician, lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday, March 19. He was an avid supporter of Kansas City’s literary community, especially The Writers Place. His heartfelt words and acts of generosity have touched many.

John Mark's family and members of The Writers Place are planning a Memorial Poetry Tribute in his honor on the afternoon of Sunday, May 26, 2:00 - 4:00pm at TWP. Please join us in creating this fund, to support once again to a community institution to which John Mark Eberhart contributed so much.

Thank you, John Mark, for gracing us with your spirit. We will miss you. We will remember you.

You can contribute to this memorial fund online by clicking here. As you complete the process, you will be invited to share your message of condolence or remembrance with John Mark's family, though this is optional: all contributors' names will be included in The Writers Place's memorial card.
