Welcome to Work in Progress, a compendium of original works, exclusive excerpts, and interviews with authors from Farrar, Straus and Giroux. First printed in 1992 as a newsletter, these are the stories behind the books. Now we send an email every week with new essays, upcoming events, our favorite tweets, and a curated selection of pieces we’ve been reading from around the web. Sometimes we even have sweepstakes and the occasional quiz.

Subscribe, and never miss a report from the front lines of literature.
