I’ve used the services of the library on and off since I was a kid. But in the last few

Re-imagination

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

I remember opening a copy of The New Yorker a few years back and turning to a new story by Alice Munro. It was called “Hired Girl.” I read the title and the first few lines. Wait a minute, I thought, I’ve read this story before.

The Joy of Failure

Living with literary rejection

by Carol Little

The amount of rejection a writer receives is astronomical. We are bombarded with rejection. It’s like being in high school for the rest of your life. Any day of the week, you can walk to the post office and get a letter telling you that your work isn’t good enough. There are days where the grail of letters, the acceptance letter, arrives, but

We were sitting in The Merchantman, seven of us. Dinner that evening was an occasion to welcome two poets who had arrived on the Island to give a reading at the public library.
