PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature

One of the best things about being a writer here in NYC is all the great literary events you have access to. This week I’m checking out several events at the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature. Yesterday was “Contemporary Writers on the Classics” with the amazing Giannina Braschi, Ib Michael, and Lauri Sheck, and “The New Censorship” at the Bowery Poetry Club. Tonight is “Street Smarts,” stories from people at the economic fringes of the US, and tomorrow is writing from the Domestic Workers United Workshop. I’m sure I’ll have lots to write about in the next few days after taking all this in, but for now I’m too busy soaking in all this literary wonderfulness!


About thebaffledkingcomposing

Pamela DiFrancesco is a writer with a community college degree in journalism, a fancy art school degree in fiction and a penchant for community organizing. A native of Pennsylvania coal country, Pamela lives in Astoria, Queens, writes, and does whatever else it takes to pay the bills. In the past, Pamela has worked for newspapers and taught children journalism in an after-school program. Pamela's fiction can be found on the web at Cezanne's Carrot and Monkeybicycle, in print in The Carolina Quarterly (who nominated "The Chuck Berry Tape Massacre" for the Best American Mystery Writing anthology) and forthcoming in The New Ohio Review. When not writing, Pamela practices acts of love and kindness in hopes of a radically different world, and is preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse through acts of badassery.
