Outer Artist on Attending the StoryStudio Panel….

Oh, wow! And OuterArtist also wrote about the recent panel at StoryStudio Chicago:

Last weekend, I attended a panel discussion at StoryStudio Chicago called “Editors Speak: Literary Magazine Panel.” The discussion was moderated by Maria Hlohowskyj, the StoryStudio’s creative programs manager, and featured panelists from Chicago-based literary magazines and book publishers. The lineup included Sarah Dodson, co-founder and executive director of Make Literary Productions, which publishes Make Literary Magazine; Ben Tanzer, director of publicity & content strategy for Curbside Splendor, which publishes books, literary journals and the Curbside Splendor e-zine; and Brian Solem, publisher of Graze Magazine.

LitCity312 has a nice write-up of last week’s panel at StoryStudio

The panel of experts included: Sarah Dodson, executive director of MAKE Literary Productions; Ben Tanzer, director of publicity & content strategy for Curbside Splendor; and Brian Solem, co-founder and editor of graze.
