So very pleased to announce the newest addition to the team: Managing Editor Crissy Van Meter! In addition to helping us wrangle things ’round these parts, Crissy is also the co-founding editor of Five Quarterly, a super cool, collaborative online lit mag, and the fiction editor for the new and gorgeous Golly Magazine. When I first met Crissy, we had a solid five-minute swoon session about Dept. of Speculation, and I knew we were going to get a long just fine. Here’s a little bit about her:
Last thing I read that was so good, not only did it knock my socks off, it stole them forever: Women by Chloe Caldwell
Currently reading: Collected Stories of Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Favorite food in the entire world: Beans and rice.
If someone absolutely forced me to recite some poetry, I would recite: ‘Do not go gentle into that good night’ by Dylan Thomas
On that note, we want to wish our former Associate Editor Emma Bushnell the warmest and fondest of farewells as she embarks on the second year of her MFA at Brooklyn. She’s one incredibly talented lady, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for her!
