Chautauqua Writers' Festival

The Chautauqua Writers' Festival convenes this year from June 17-20 on the grounds of Chautauqua Institution and the shores of Lake Chautauqua in western New York state. It's a four-day festival where participants can choose to work in any genre. There are daily workshops with a faculty member, open mics, genre and publishing panels, readings, writing time, and great music. The past couple of years, participants often stay at the Athenaeum, a historic 19th-century inn with endless porches and wicker. In creative nonfiction this year, the faculty are Tom French and Jacob Levenson. Diana Hume George is a co-director, and if you have questions after visiting the website, contact her at diana@coaxPA.com.

Been List-less? No More!

Starting from a list of 80, the brains at Niemann brought it down to a less intimidating number of great stories of the decade. Happy reading.
