The “Literary Boroughs” series originally ran on the Ploughshares blog between May 2012 and February 2013, and showcased the literary side of dozens of towns and cities around the world. Please submit up to 1,500 words about your chosen Literary Borough. You’re welcome to use past entries in the series as a guide for the sorts of things you might talk about, but don’t feel constrained by the format of the older posts; the most important thing is that you give a clear sense of what makes the place you’re talking about so “literary”—be it famous residents, books set there, or lots of libraries—and a round-up of the best literary things to do in town. Is there a great independent bookstore? A great local writing center or program? A great reading series? A great coffeeshop to sit and write? Every literary borough is different, so try to show us what’s unique about yours.
