An Essay Daily Advent Calendar

is just about to start in this very space, friends.

We've been on down time for a while but are going to be presenting posts, each day this December until Christmas (it's an advent calendar of sorts), of essayists talking about an essay that they're most excited about at present.

Authors to be presented include Amy Benson, Barrie Jean Borich, Simmons Buntin, Steven Church, Chris Cokinos, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Noam Dorr, Hannah Ensor, T. Fleischmann, Joshua Foster, Melissa Gutierrez, BJ Hollars, Julie Lauterbach-Colby, Allie Leach, David LeGault, Sean Lovelace, Brenda Miller, Ander Monson, Dinty W. Moore, Lisa O'Neill, Elena Passarello, Lia Purpura, Craig Reinbold, Morgan Sherburne, Jill Talbot, Nicole Walker, and Kirk Wisland. More to come—but in the meantime we'll debut the first essay on 12/1.

We hope to also present excerpts or the entireties of the essays in question under the doctrine of some sort of rockin' fair use.

No one probably has ever called fair use rockin'. It's okay. Stay with us—
