The New Face...

...of the Paris Review.

  1. Hi Frank,

    There is also this on the Paris Review:

    The National Post: The "Rejecterinos": On the Paris Review's poetry rejection scandal

    Here's an excerpt:

    As such, the pair who have overseen the section (the Holy Grail of literary journals for poets) for years, Meghan O’Rourke and Dan Chiasson, elected to move to positions entitled “advisory editors.” Along with new leadership comes new creativity, which is presumably the logic under which [Lorin] Stein and [Robyn] Creswell were operating when they received a year’s worth of accepted poems from O’Rourke and Chiasson and promptly un-accepted a stack of them from established poets such as Joshua Corey and Michael Schiavo. In those cases, about a year after the acceptances, each received a terse e-mail from Stein saying thanks but no thanks. Backsies!
