I've been guest-editing the upcoming spring issue of Good Little Girls since early February, alongside GLG founder & Chief Editor Sonia Chintha. Sonia and I have been friends since high school, and coming back together to co-edit has been an utter delight, I couldn't be happier she asked me. It has also been wonderful reading over submissions and working to understand each writer's voice, their style, and their intended audience, so that my feedback is as accurate & useful as possible. (I always hated when people who didn't understand my work tried to change it to what they thought it *should* be, rather than helping me hone and sharpen what it already was.) This is entirely new for me. I have been an editor who selects from finished works; a writers' room member who both writes and co-edits along with all the other writers; and a hired reader/editor for full-length novels. But now I get to add to that: feedback editor for short essay and first person non-fic. So nice I'll say it twice: adding this new tool to my belt has been an utter delight.
I've finally updated my LIVE LIT and WRITINGS pages with additional works from the past couple years, including both WRITE CLUB and Paper Machete. Those who are too far away to attend shows have been patient but persistent about me updating, thanks for all the elbowing ;)
Hope March is treating y'all well. More soon!
Same books as last post. Look, if you haven't already caught on, I'm a ril slow reader.
