An Evening with Emerging Writers and Editors


Tuesday, September 27, 2022 | 7:00 p.m. ET Online

A Public Space invites aspiring writers and editors to a conversation about the art of the editorial dialogue. Bring your questions and join APS managing editor Megan Cummins and Writing and Editorial Fellows Vivian Hu, Crawford Hunt, Taylor Michael, and Ruby Wang as they discuss their early experiences of working with either an editor or a writer, and their questions for each other about the surprises they found on their side of the relationship. Audience members will have an opportunity to ask about career paths for writers and editors. You can find more information about the Fellowship programs at A Public Space—and an archive of past Fellows and their work in the magazine—here.

This event is free, but registration is required. Please note this formerly in-person event has been moved online.

This is an official 2022 Brooklyn Book Festival event.
