Didn’t make it to the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference this summer? You can now download many of the lectures and readings from the 2009 session for free on iTunes. A partial list is available now; more will be added soon.
Lectures include Ellen Bryant Voigt on irony, Charles Baxter on lush styles in prose, and Thomas Mallon on the letters of presidents . And there’s a wide selection of fiction readings, including faculty members Maud Casey, Thomas Mallon, and Luis Alberto Urrea; special guest Lorrie Moore; and fiction fellows Lauren Groff, Aryn Kyle, Skip Horack, and many more–plus readings by up-and-coming writers who were scholars and staff.
Here’s a quick guide to get you started, or jump right in and browse the Bread Loaf iTunes page; it’s all free. Recordings from the 2008 session are also available, including readings by FWR contributors Steven Wingate and Preeta Samarasan.
