This series brings together leading editors, writers, and organizers to discuss the work that they do—of composing, publishing, and disseminating new writing and works of art. Over the course of three events in April, participants from a range of fields will present their own creative and professional trajectories and discuss the state of contemporary publishing.
All events in this series are organized and moderated by Lucy Ives, Fellow-in-Residence at the Center for Experimental Humanities.
Sponsored by the NYU Center for Humanities.
