Serious fiction writers, poets,
and dramatists have always been abysmally rewarded for their labor
… and it’s rather appalling, given how much pleasure they provide us and how urgently they speak to us of what it means to be human and to live in the age we live in.
~ Jonna Semeiks, editor in chief of Confrontation
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Jonna Semeiks, editor in chief of Confrontation, a literary journal that has published the likes of Steinbeck and Auden alongside unknown and soon-to-be-known writers. You can read what Semeiks had to say about Confrontation‘s future at The Review Review, a website edited by Becky Tuch that publishes reviews the latest issues of literary journals and interviews the editors behind them.
