The Writing Path 2: Poetry and Prose from Writers' Conferences.
Pettit, Michael, Ed.
With selections from both teachers and students from writers conferences, festivals, and workshops, this anthology brings together a group of "seasoned and fresh writers" for readers/students to savor. The anthology points out that each summer writers conferences are held at Mount Holyoke, Bread Loaf, Sewanee, Iowa City, Port Townsend, and many other places, where the teaching faculty is composed of distinguished poets, fiction writers, and writers of nonfiction prose who have gained a wide readership and the students are generally promising beginners and emerging professionals. Some of the new voices in the anthology have already been published in prestigious magazines, such as "The New Yorker,""Poetry," and "Paris Review." The anthology contains more than 75 short selections from 31 authors. (NKA)
