Luminaries? Gosh. If you must. Such is the title for a panel at the The College Media Convention in New York, which I will take part in next Monday at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Here are the details. See you there!

Magazine luminaries panel: Dispatches from the bloody trenches of little literary magazines

A summit of the most powerful and pioneering generals of literary magazine warfare will share their dispatches from the front lines. Or perhaps the gentle souls of the placid pages of literary America will mellifluously share their kind encouragement. Truth is, we don’t know what will happen when we bring these folks together!
