Andy Hunter on the Future of the Literary Journal

Paris Review editor Lorin Stein made headlines last month when he spoke about the changing world of literary journals: “We used to think of [the readership] as a little old lady who lived on the Upper East Side … [She's] moved to Florida and now she’s on Facebook, on Skype, with her grandkids.”

In our Media Beat interview this week, Electric Literature co-founder Andy Hunter explained how his literary journal has coped with this evolving readership.

The complete interview is embedded above. Stay tuned the rest of the week for the next two installments. Hunter will be one of many guests at Mediabistro’s eBook Summit on December 15th.
