The 2014 Festival
The 2014 Authors
The 2014 festival featured authors (from left to right) Valzyhna Mort, Gina Welch, Brendan Jay Sullivan, Nina McConigley, Teddy Wayne, Amy Herzog and Callie Wright (not pictured).
Panels from the 2014 festival included: "My First Time: Writers Talk about their First Publication," "Writing Across the Spectrum: What Writers of Different Genres can Learn from Each Other," "Political Writing: Writing Politics" and "Biting into the Big Apple: How to Survive and Maybe Even Thrive as a Writer in New York City."
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.
In this inaugural event, Professor Claire Gleitman of IC College and the IC On the Verge team performed a staged reading of playwright Amy Herzog's After the Revolution.
