Literary Links


A Young Girl Reading by Jean-Honoré Fragonard, c. 1776.

We’ve been quite busy here at BU Creative Writing — on Tuesday, Katie McGunagle and Nina Palisano read at Writers at the Black Box, the first one of the year! — and tonight, Jeff Huizinga and Daniel Leonard will be reading at the Breakwater Reading Series at Brookline Booksmith (7 PM).  Please come support our current MFA candidates!

Here are some literary links to start off your fall weekend:

Check out this new independent press, Eyewear, based in the UK.  (They’re open to submission queries.)

Pinsky, Wine, & Jazz tomorrow night.

I’ve been reading Tamar Adler’s An Everlasting Meal, modeled after M.F.K. Fisher’s classic How to Cook a Wolf, and it’s filled with delightful and philosophical meditations on food and living.

“It’s possible to bend language to your will, to invest extraordinary amounts of effort and care to make words do what you want them to do.” – Seth Godin

The George Saunders Fan Club (me + three reading friends) is reading “Victory Lap” for next week’s meeting.  Did you know George has a B.S. in geophysical engineering from Colorado School of Mines?

Yesterday was Oscar Wilde’s birthday. Here are a few of his Maxims for the Instruction of the Over-Educated.

Happy Friday from BU Creative Writing, and we hope your weekend is filled with wild and whirling words.
