Word Feast 2018 will revolve around the theme of memory — both cultural and personal. Memory, like the St. John River featured in our logo, is constantly changing as it flows and moves through time, gathering new information and experiences. Still: courses and currents may shift, but there is no changing where we’ve been, or the events and insights that have shaped us. Writing is always an act of creation, but it is also an act of memory — and sometimes memory-keeping. This year, Word Feast authors will loosely coalesce around memory in its many forms — through historical fiction, story, memoir, poetry and reflection.
