The Conium Review‘s Managing Editor, James R. Gapinski, will be on a panel at this year’s AWP conference in Seattle, WA.
“Let’s Avoid a Quick Death, Please: Starting and Sustaining a New Literary Publication”
Room 301, Western New England MFA Annex, Level 3
Thursday, February 27th, 2014
3:00pm to 4:15pm
This panel explores the process of starting and sustaining a new literary publication. Countless small presses and journals launch every year only to die after a couple issues. Let’s talk with some people who avoided that fate. This panel will discuss how to choose the right publishing medium, secure funding, attract readers, and deal with unexpected hurdles.
The panelists include Matt Muth (representing Pacifica), Stefanie Torres (representing Beecher’s), Joshua S. Raab (representing theNewerYork) and James R. Gapinski (representing The Conium Review).
Chelsea Werner-Jatzke moderates.
Pacifica is celebrating its third issue at The Pine Box in Seattle, WA on February 17th, 2014. Chelsea Werner-Jatzke (a former The Conium Review contributor) will be reading some of her fiction at the event.
You can find the full details, including a list of the night’s poetry and fiction readers on Facebook.
Later in February, Chelsea will also moderate an AWP panel that includes Pacifica‘s editor, Matt Muth, James R. Gapinski (our Managing Editor), and representatives from other small press publications.
