Panels from the 2016 festival included: "My First Time: Writers Talk about their First Publication," "The Politics of Place," "Forms of Fiction," and "After Sex."



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.
