Great Article on the Editor/Writer Relationship

Thanks to the Hayden’s Ferry Review blog for linking to this great article by Don Lee discussing the sometimes contentious relationship between writers and the editors of literary magazines.

Lee states:
I will concede that there are some real asshole editors out there—rude, negligent, incompetent, narrow-minded, stupid narcissists who wouldn’t know a good story or poem if it slapped them on the face—but they’re a minority, I believe. I think most editors are dedicated, tireless, honorable people, and they’re woefully underappreciated.

Thank an editor today!
