Born out of the Colgate Writers' Conference, this collection of essays brings together a diverse group of gifted authors and teachers who are passionate about the art of writing. The authors share their knowledge, experience, and inspiration gathered from years of practicing and studying their craft. Topics covered range from the practical, such as how to attract an editor or agent, to more theoretical concerns such as transforming the texture of thought and emotion into text. Both veteran writers and novices will find this anthology to be an indispensable resource. Edited by former Executive Director Matt Leone.

Crafting Fiction, Poetry, & Memoir can be purchased online here. We hope to make more copies available at the Colgate bookstore soon.



A second edited volume of essays developed at the Colgate Writers Conference is in progress - check back here for details in the months to come!
