Winter Wheat: The Mid-American Review Festival of Writing

Posted by bgsuenglish on November 13, 2009

Winter Wheat: The Mid-American Review Festival of Writing began last night and continues today through Sunday. For those who have never attended Winter Wheat before, each day has a different flavor. Friday and Saturday of the festival are filled with more craft-oriented sessions.This year’s sessions cover a wealth of writing-related topics with titles such as “You Don’t Have to Travel to Rome to Write a Good Story: Finding Material in the Everyday” or “Compelling Alliances: Text From Image. ”

Friday’s sessions begin in the afternoon and are followed by a reading by one of our featured readers. This is followed by the annual roundtable discussion. Saturday is the big day. There is a book fair, filled with literary journals, as well as a table for presenters to sell their books. The sessions (four time slots) run all day.
