Video: “How to Get Your [insert genre] Pulled from the Slush Pile”

–Excerpt from a panel from AWP

Here Kristen Iversen, Editor-in-chief, talks about how The Pinch goes about selecting pieces from the slush pile. Her comments could be applied to any genre, though the finer points of editing really connect more with prose.

Then Tom Useted, the Managing Editor for the Spring 2013 issue, talks specifically about “Touch” by Steve Adams, the creative nonfiction piece that opens my issue (as Managing Editor), Spring 2012, of The Pinch.
