YOUR FIRST READERS: HOW EDITORS BECOME A POSITIVE PART OF YOUR SHORT STORY PROCESS
Readings and Panel discussion.
What do short story writers hope for from editors? What makes editors say yes to stories? What happens after your story is accepted? Timothy J. Lambert and Becky Cochrane, editors of the anthologies Best Gay Romance 2014 and Foolish Hearts, talk about their process of creating an anthology from the call for submissions to story acceptance and beyond.
Anthology contributors including N.S. Beranek, ‘Nathan Burgoine, Rob Byrnes, Jameson Currier, Greg Herren, and David Puterbaugh will read short excerpts from their stories and discuss their perspective of the writer/editor relationship.
