Friday Find: Quotidiana

I have only begun tapping the rich resources of Quotidiana, a Web site “dedicated to the essay.” Created by Patrick Madden, an essayist and assistant professor of English at Brigham Young University, Quotidiana provides an online compendium of 269 public domain essays. Beyond that, the site also offers Madden’s writing and teaching portfolios (the link to the teaching portfolio was unfortunately not working when I last checked), a section featuring his students’ successes, and interviews with essayists. It’s an interesting site reflecting the past, present, and future of the form. (via Lisa Romeo’s blog)
