On and off for the last year I've been developing a project called Readsfeed, a website that automatically shares snippets and links to short stories, poems, and reviews by literary publications on the web.
These technologically stingy websites made me wonder: what exactly is the mission and use of literary journals in the digital era?
How could that person who loved Steinbeck's writing now be this person who hates it?
I recently rediscovered the virtues of journaling, something slower, more reflective, and of course more private than blogging.
I'm reading Style: Towards Clarity and Grace by Joseph M. Williams.
I've been taking my time through the Thelonious Monk Reader.
For this fiction editor, no fiction lately! I recently finished How to Rig an Election: Confessions of a Republican Operative.
