For Jim, But Anyone Can Enjoy

We’ve had the link to Dan Wickett’s latest interview with literary journal editors in the queue for almost a week because, as it turns out, there is an award for laziest blogger ever, and we’re in the running. However, our sense of public service has won over our desire for glory — and we know there are readers who are interested in this important information.
Thus we bring you Dan’s conversation with Eli Horowitz – McSweeney’s, Thom Didado – Failbetter, Ravi Shankar – Drunken Boat, Steve Erickson – Black Clock, Bradford Morrow – Conjunctions, Charles Valle – Fence, Steven A. Dolgin – The MacGuffin, and Dinty W. Moore – Brevity (note: we are so hoping this is a real name). For a hint of what’s to come, we present an answer to the “welcome to the panel” question:

Yes, even the summer doldrums seem strung out on amphetamines when teaching supplements creative practice, editing a literary journal, going to multiple weddings and trying to grow a lawn. No amount of sun or water seems to help! I was hoping to read Remembrance of Things Past this summer, but it looks like it might be another Proustless year. (Ravi Shankar – Drunken Boat)

    Thanks! But I think that lazy is having something that you consider completed and not getting over the final hump of actually sending it to anybody.

    Also, that Ravi Shankar & Mike Mills are working together on something that isn’t going to be an R.E.M. b-side.
