Contemporary Vermont Fiction

An Anthology

Contemporary Vermont Fiction: An Anthology is a 240-page collection of short fiction by established Vermont-based writers, each rendering their own unique and diverse perspectives on the cultural and physical landscape of the Green Mountain State.  

Featuring stories by Howard Frank Mosher, Annie Proulx, Wallace Stegner, Megan Mayhew Bergman, Castle Freeman, Laurie Alberts, Robert Olmstead, Joseph Bruchac, Suzanne Kingsbury and more, this book is a chorus of voices portraying the diversified landscape and culture of Vermont.  

This book will be particularly relevant to Vermont residents and tourists, we consider this collection not just an ode to a specific place, but a book about how places shape and are shaped by the people who inhabit them, and about the power of fiction itself: how stories are a means of engendering empathy, illuminating interconnection, prompting new ways of imagining and living, and by doing all of these, help birth cultures of conservation.   

Robin MacArthur Editor, Robin MacArthur, is a third-generation Vermonter from Marlboro who has been studying Vermont-based fiction (and writing her own) since she left for college at eighteen. She has an MFA in Fiction from Vermont College of Fine Arts; her essays and stories about Vermont have appeared in Orion, Shenandoah, Hunger Mountain and Alaska Quarterly.
