The New Symposium offers twenty-four essays, on the Commons, Justice, and Home, produced for a series of literary encounters on the Greek island of Paros. The International Writing Program invited poets and writers from around the world to exchange ideas, in an intimate setting, on some of the persistent questions of our time. What emerged was a dynamic collection of essays certain to challenge assumptions, broaden perspectives, and spark new ways of thinking.

Featuring work by Daniel Alarcón, Jeff Carson, Ksenia Golubovich, Ameena Hussein, Jane Hirshfield, Ma Thida, Mohamed Magani, Lewis Hyde, David St. John, Scott Russell Sanders, Natasha Trethewey, and more.
