The Yale Review invites you to their 2024 festival in New Haven where, over the course of four days, participants attend writing workshops, talks, and panels with some of today’s most exciting poets, novelists, and critics. On Thursday, April 18, Brian Dillon will join Meghan O’Rourke, Merve Emre, Namwali Serpell, and Christine Smallwood for the final keynote panel discussion of the festival, entitled 'What is criticism, and why do we write it?'

Writer, critic, and scholar Brian Dillon is the author of several books, including three nonfiction books and essay collections—Affinities: On Art and Fascination, Suppose a Sentence, and Essayism: on Form, Feeling, and Nonfiction—from New York Review Books. His writing has appeared in The Guardian, The New York Times, London Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement, Bookforum, frieze, and Artforum. He is also the UK Editor of Cabinet Magazine and professor of creative writing at Queen Mary University of London. 

This panel discussion, co-sponsored by the Poynter Fellowship in Journalism, is free and open to the public, no reservation required, and follows a criticism-writing workshop led by Dillon. Please note, however, that registration for the workshop is limited to members of the Yale community, with priority given to Yale students.
