TW Reading Series

Talking Writing brings new audiences to literary work,
republishing selections that originally appeared in print.


The TW Reading Series showcases print work that deserves a wider audience. Because our nonprofit mission is to expand readership for literature and journalism online, Talking Writing occasionally reprints excerpts from books and other journals published by small or university presses.

Our selection process is based on what TW editors like and upcoming themes in the magazine. We take suggestions from readers, contributing writers, and publishers. If you'd like us to consider work for the Series, please contact TW with a query.

In the lists below, new titles appear as they're published throughout the year.
