After talking about myself and the readers, it’s time to zoom out to talk about literary magazines’ relationship with a city, and in particular, its relationship with the culture and creativity.
Last time I mentioned that the mentality between literary magazine editors and book lovers isn’t purely “addition”—it involves many rational analysing and calculation.
“Wow, you work at a literary magazine? You must love reading.” That’s what people always say to me when I introduce myself. It makes me feel somewhat embarrassed.
