The NER Vermont Reading Series [http://www.nereview.com/ner-vt-reading-series/], which began in 2011, provides an opportunity for writers to read their work in front of an audience, and to acquaint local audiences with a great variety of literary talent. The series presents not only authors who’ve published in the New England Review and elsewhere, but also those just starting out, who may be unpublished and reading their work for the first time.
