The Triangle: Finding the Writing Community in Central PA

Erin Dorney and Tyler Barton, both writers from Lancaster, were a bit surprised there was such a great writing community in Central PA because, well, they never heard about it.

"I was kind feeling a little bit surprised and a little bit unsure of why I didn't know of this earlier," says Tyler. "And this is when I met Erin around this time we both agreed that no one knows what other people are doing. So we are trying to make it more public; here's a calendar of everything that's happening, here are interviews with the people who are making it happen, trying to let everyone know that it's happening."

The result is The Triangle (, a website that is the main hub for just about everything a local writer could want. "I would basically describe us as an organization that promotes literary events in south central Pennsylvania," says Erin, "and we also host our own events which we add to our calendar and help support any literary-focused projects or initiatives in the area."

    Is this story inspired by Radiolab? It's confusing and irritating (unlike Radiolab). I'm talking about stuff like Joe speaking over the interviewees and the inclusion of random stuff like the guy spelling his name in the background. The fuzzy transitions from Joe to quotes was remarkably annoying.

    Is this kind of production going to be standard in local stories going forward? I hope not. I'd be happy if it was never used again.
