Did you know that Vermont is home to the oldest writers conference in America? Established in 1926, the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference is still going strong some 90 years later. The prestigious program, hosted by Middlebury College and conceived by poet Robert Frost, continues to attract both established and emerging writers of considerable prowess. Historically, the roster has included the likes of Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter and Sinclair Lewis. This year, T. Geronimo Johnson (pictured), Natasha Tretheway, James Longenbach and others add their names to the list. Aspiring writers and literati, take note: They’re giving free lectures and readings all week.
