The Latest Word :: Craft Essays & Interviews
Love. I love craft essays. Love. Northwestern University’s TriQuarterly online lit mag has “The Latest Word” which features a slew of craft essays and a few interviews published on a continuous basis per issue. A sample of these from the past issue – which are all available to read online – include a five-part series on “Writing into the World: Memoir, History and Private Life” with parts authored by Carolyn Forché, Garth Greenwell, Alysia Abbott, Catina Bacote, and Honor Moore. Other essays: “TV Room at the Children’s Hospice” by Michael Ryan; “Fashioning a Text: Finding the Right Fit” by Michael Steinberg; “Me, Myself, I: Idiosyncrasy and Structure in Nonfiction” by Michael Downs; “Synchronicity and Structure” by Robert Root; “Around the Candy Bowl” by Elyssa East; and “Finding a Form Before a Form Finds You by Patrick Madden” [pictured].
