Pictures From Last Night’s Armchair/Shotgun Panel at Greenlight

Last night I moderated this event at Greenlight Books in Brooklyn. I’ve always wanted to be a moderator!

Our fabulous panelists were Paul Morris, formerly of BOMB, now Director of Membership, Marketing, and Literary Awards at PEN American Center; The Atavist founding editor Evan Ratliff; fellow lit-agent Erin Harris of Irene Skolnick; Halimah Marcus, Managing Editor at Electric Literature; and Tess Knoebel, Founding Editor of Abe’s Penny.

Thanks to Armchair/Shotgun managing editor Laura MacMillan for snapping photos.

We packed the house!

I was terrified I'd drop my iPad. So I put rubber cement on my fingertips.

As you may recall, when I’m not writing novels or battling forty-story robots from the future, I also co-manage a literary magazine. I’m so proud and honored that Armchair/Shotgun is listed with nine other “Literary Heirs” today in New York Times Magazine.

“What distinguishes these 10 is that they’re not only intello-chic statements for your side table. They’re also really good reads.”

And FYI: I’ll be moderating Armchair/Shotgun’s panel discussion at Greenlight Books on March 5th, featuring Abe’s Penny and Electric Literature, along with several other super guests. Come join us!
