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.

Click here to open iTunes and browse the offerings. (If you don’t have iTunes, it’s also free—download it here.)
