Writers Among Us

by on Jan.07, 2011, under News

The good folks at St. Albans School have just published an anthology of fiction, poetry, and essays featuring contributions from everyone in the 29-year history of its Writer-in-Residence fellowship.  Writers Among Us includes memorable new writing, excerpts from award-winning novels and collections, and pieces reprinted from places like The New Yorker, The Paris Review, The Nation, and Best American Short Stories.  Check out the complete list of contributors: Lora Jane Berg, Will Blythe, Beth Boyett, Katie Brandi, Stuart Holmes Coleman, Bernardine Connelly, Cynthia Cotts, Ronica (Bhattacharya) Dhar, Caitlin Doyle, James Hoch, David Kajganich, Matthew Klam, Kimberly Libby, Robert Lunday, Margaret Meyers, Michael Pickard, Hannah Louise Poston, Brendan Short, Shauna Seliy, Curtis Sittenfeld, Brian Weinberg, Holly Richards Woodward, Christy J. Zink, Mary Kay Zuravleff. As the current campus scribe here at St. Albans, I arrived just in time to join the party with my short story "Primary Next of Kin."  You can order a copy of the book here.  Not only will you find some terrific winter reading, you'll also be contributing to a great school that has made supporting young writers a vital part of its tradition.
