The original Chautauqua, founded in New York State, inspired a national movement that included traveling tent shows imitating the programs presented at Chautauqua. These shows brought theater, opera, classical music, art, theological debate, and literature to the hinterlands all across America. Over the years, the literary arts became a prominent focus, culminating in The Chautauqua Writers' Center—the 2008 season celebrating its twentieth anniversary. Chautauqua wraps that milestone between covers and anchors a new incarnation of the Center's signature publication, Chautauqua.

In crafting this volume, editors Jill and Philip Gerard contacted every writer they could find who served the 2008 anniversary season on the Center faculty, searching out work that exemplifies the spirit that pervades The Writers Festival and the subsequent nine weeks. The prose and poetry includes more than seventy poems and twenty works of prose, including work by Ann Hood, Leslie Rubinowski, Philip Terman, Michael McFee, Richard Hoffman, and many others.
