The 2015 Boston Book Festival features more than 200 authors participating in more than four dozen presentations, conversations and panels. Topics include science, technology, literary criticism, art and architecture, poetry, fiction and writing for children and young adults. Of special interest to writers are the “Writer Idol” session sponsored by GrubStreet, in which excerpts from audience-submitted works-in-progress are read anonymously and critiqued by a panel of literary agents. This year we are also expanding our “Reading Like a Writer” sessions, an in-depth exploration of craft featuring conversations with up-and-coming and established fiction writers. The full lineup and schedule will be announced in late summer or early fall.
