Editor in Chief of Chicago-based non-profit literary magazine explicit in building relationships with and supporting contributors.
I oversee the selection, layout, and distribution of quarterly issues and projects while managing event planning and logistics. I also run everything from the business operations side such as sales, distribution, grant writing, marketing, and brand development.
Test Literary Series
