You’re Invited: On Bringing Together a Group of Writers & Assembling an Anthology
Anthologies hold an important spot in the literary world: They are a place for writers to share the stories that unite them, each author or poet bringing a fresh perspective to the conversation. As readers, anthologies let us hear from writers we admire and discover new voices within the same volume. And as emerging writers, an anthology can be where we first see our work in print. In this talk, anthologists discuss their experience of curating a community into one book. Learn how to discover new opportunities to contribute to anthologies, the process of creating one, and how this essential format is critical to the literary canon. Featuring Michele Filgate, Jennifer Baker, Mahogany Browne, and Bushra Rehman. Moderated by Catherine Tung.
