Book cover for essay collection "Goodbye to All That"
Seal Press

In the revised edition of the essay collection "Goodbye to All That," thirty writers share their own stories of loving and leaving New York, capturing the mesmerizing allure the city has always had for writers, poets, and wandering spirits.

Their essays often begin as love stories do, with the passion of something newly discovered. They also share the grief that comes like a gut-punch, when the grand metropolis loses its magic and the pressures of New York's frenetic life wear thin for even the most dedicated dwellers.

Editor of the collection, Sari Botton is the former essays editor for Longreads. She teaches writing courses at Catapult and in Bay Path University's MFA program.

TMI Project

Jul 23, 2018

Since 2010, the Hudson Valley based TMI Project has used a time-tested storytelling methodology, transformational workshops and stellar performances in an effort to change the world one story at a time – and they have a lot going on.

The weekend of August 17, the workshop “True Storytelling with TMI Project” will be at Omega Women's Leadership Center in Rhinebeck, NY.

The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ youth, has teamed up with TMI Project to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Eva Tenuto and Sari Botton join us to tell us more about the Omega workshop, TMI’s documentary film “Vicarious Resilience,” and their partnership with The Trevor Project.
