The 2018 Festival

The 2018 Authors

The 2018 festival featured authors (from left to right): James Allen Hall, Sarah DeLappe, Chris Santiago, Sonya Chung, Hermione Hoby, Stephanie Powell Watts, Emily Fridlund.


Panels from the 2018 festival included: "The End of Genre: Writing the Self and Choosing the Medium," "Failing Better: From Rejection to Publication," "Kiss or Kill: Writing Sex and Violence in the Age of #MeToo," and "Text and the City (and the Country)."



By tradition, the festival begins at Buffalo Street Books with a series of micro readings. Readings over the next two days took place at Ithaca's Handwerker Gallery. These gave the authors a longer chance to show off their work. 

Staged Play


Professor Claire Gleitman of Ithaca College and the IC On the Verge team performed a staged reading in The Cherry Artspace of playwright Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves.
