Kirsten Reach

In a lively Q&A Kirsten talked to our class about the steps a publishing house goes through to acquire a book and how best to present yourself when trying to publish a novel.  Kirsten was an editor at Melville House before accepting a job as asst. managing editor at the Kenyon Review in 2015. Her insights might have been depressing coming out of another voice box, but Kirsten's upbeat personality and positivity galvanized the writers instead of discouraging them.
