Snipping Knots and Getting Somewhere: Short Comments on “Good Old Neon,” a Not-So-Short Short Story by David Foster Wallace, by Elias Keller

Four years before his suicide in 2008, David Foster Wallace published his final story collection, Oblivion, which includes eight pieces ranging in length from three pages to about sixty. Unlike his earlier Brief Interviews with Hideous Men collection, there’s no thematic linkage throughout Oblivion, which makes the stories easier to critique singularly, and often singled

Homage to James Dickey’s “Deliverance” – A Retrospective by Ron Clinton Smith

When a gifted poet approaches the novel, the results can be compelling, unusual, certainly bizarre; but exactly what you’ll get is hard to imagine.

At the same time I decided to be, or realized I was, a writer, I came across the wildly exhilarating poetry of Atlanta born, James Dickey. He attended my high school

Guest Post: In Defense of Fanfiction by Erika Staiger

Erika Staiger

Like a lot of creative writing MFA students, I’m spending my summer trying to turn a few half-written scenes into a novel that I hope might become my thesis (I’m in the I-should-have-just-gone-to-law-school-like-my-parents-wanted-me-to faze of my writing process, thanks for asking).

This isn’t my first time through the book-writing ordeal. Technically, I’ve written and published

Guest Post: What to Remember While Time Traveling by Lisa Aldridge

Lisa Aldridge

My grandfather took me fishing when I was a little girl. I’ll never forget the thrill of catching my first fish and the utter horror at how that fish flopped around helplessly gasping for gill-filtered oxygen. Until the moment I pulled that creature from the lake, the fish had never taken notice of the water

Guest Post: Because of Merwin by Michelle Boland

Michelle Boland

It’s time for a confession. I have been hiding my poetry writing as a shameful secret for quite some time. Those few occasions when I spoke the words out loud to someone, “I’m a poet,” I felt like I was confessing something taboo like, “I’m a sex addict, or “I eat raw cookie dough.” Poetry

Guest Post: Writing into the Void by Sarah Bradley

Sarah Bradley

It’s something straight out of a science fiction novel: a dark and limitless expanse, full of bright stars, as foreign and intangible as any distant galaxy.

It’s a kind of limbo, a gray area where my thoughts are made concrete on the page but haven’t actually transformed into anything meaningful yet.

It’s an imaginary abyss

Guest Post: Keeping the Writer-in-You Fed by Carol Park

Carol Park

In my previous blog I discussed the many mandates given writers about keeping up their writing life. I question whether these literary practices are actually absolute in nature. They are often touted with the same certainty as a college education.

Personally, I’ve found that a literary practice immensely useful during one portion of my life
