Welcome!

Welcome to our blog for This Goodly Land: Alabama's Literary Landscape. This Goodly Land is an online literary map for the State of Alabama. On our Web site, we provide biographical sketches of Alabama writers past and present and link them to the places in Alabama that were/are significant to them.

We'll be using this blog to call attention to new site features, new author profiles, and other things that make us proud. We'll also be making announcements about events such as conferences and festivals where we'll be promoting This Goodly Land. Occasionally, we'll call your attention to items we think are of interest to the Alabama literary community as a whole.

This won't be a daily blog. It may not even be a weekly blog. We will emulate David Byrne and Mr. Ed and only write when we have something we feel is worth communicating. We hope you'll agree with us. Of course, if you don't, that's what the Comments section is for.
