Twin Peaks isn’t just a show that almost single-handedly prefigured what we’re now calling the Golden Age of Television. It was a revelation and inspiration for countless creative folk coming of age in the early 90s.

The Twin Peaks Project invited a bunch of thoughtful authors and artists to write about their experience with the show, consider its influence, and measure its impact. The results—everything from critique to memoir, personal essay to poetry—were published on participating online journals and blogs. All contributions were given a brief intro and linked to from the project blog.
