The Editor's Panel, Barrelhouse Conversations & Connections

  • George Mason University 3351 Fairfax Drive Arlington, VA, 22201 United States (map)

What makes a story/poem/essay stand out in the slush pile? What do editors love? What are their secret pet peeves? This panel of literary magazine and small press editors is here to pull back the curtain and let you know what happens behind the scenes of the submission and rejection and acceptance process and answer your questions about publishing and the writing life. 

Publishing, cross-genre. Panelists: Nate Brown (American Short Fiction), Paula Whyman  (Scoundrel Time),  Marcos Martinez (Stillhouse Press), Allison Wright (Virginia Quarterly Review), Mark Drew (Gettysburg Review). Moderated by Joe Killiany (Barrelhouse).

Allison will also participate in Speed Dating with Editors at noon.
