From Andre to Anton: The Writer’s Writer

From Andre to Anton: The Writer’s Writer

Our Twitter experiment this week came from Sonia Chung’s wonderful essay, “I Heart Chekhov“, from The Millions. We wanted to design some postcards. We used what Nabokov considered to be Chekhov’s chosen color register, “a tint between the color of an old fence and that of a low cloud.” Here are testimonials — all loving, we left Hemingway out — dug up from around the literary archive.

Open Source is another first of its kind: a show that combines the best of independent podcasting with the art of live radio conversation. You can help us launch Year Two and be part of an experiment that will include more conversations, more features on our new website and more live events in Boston. And you can help us attract (and pay) more young talent to work with us.

Help us kick off year two - donate to our Kickstarter today.
