Triple-threat Michelle Wildgen packs her days with words. An executive editor for Tin House literary magazine, creative writing teacher and acclaimed novelist, Wildgen recently spoke with The Writer about her upcoming panel with the Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival. She also gave us an inside look at her busy writing life.
Her work with the renowned Tin House involves weekly Skype meetings with the editorial staff to discuss submissions. Wildgen reads through general fiction and essays, as well as submissions for the food and drink section of the magazine. At the upcoming TW/NOLF in March, she will be part of a literary journal panel to discuss what really happens in the dreaded slush pile.
