We are pleased to be able to make public that The Lifted Brow is now an official partner of Literary Hub, what looks to be the new go-to source for literary culture on the web.
As the Wall Street Journal reported:
“The site, scheduled to go live on April 8, is called Literary Hub. Focusing on literary fiction and nonfiction, it will present personal and critical essays, interviews and book excerpts contributed by nearly 70 partners ranging from the small press New Directions to heavyweights such as Scribner, Knopf and Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Bookstores and literary magazines such as the Paris Review also will contribute. The site, at lithub.com, will commission original content, including dispatches on the literary scenes in cities across the country, bookstore profiles and a weekly review of books. (Organizers are still discussing whether it should publish its own book reviews.) The site will offer a new book excerpt each day, and a daily roundup of literary news.”
The site will offer diverse original content curated by Editor in Chief Jonny Diamond, Executive Editor John Freeman, Contributing Editors including Roxane Gay, Rebecca Wolff, and Alexander Chee, and nearly a dozen correspondents from across the country.
It seems that every single magazine, journal and book publisher that we admire and try to emulate is a partner of this new enterprise, including McSweeney’s, BOMB, The Paris Review, n+1, Gigantic, FSG, New Directions, Graywolf, and actually all the rest of the partners, so it is a ridiculous understatement to say that we are thrilled.
More news to come soon, especially when Literary Hub launches on April 8th.
We recommend you sign up to their mailing list immediately so that you don’t miss out on all the forthcoming excellentness.
