The panel was "Lit Mags" - Opportunities for You
Wilson Wyatt (editor and a founder of Delmarva Review) was the person who pulled everything together. Wyatt, Richard Peabody (Gargoyle), Jody Bolz (Poet Lore) and myself shared our knowledge and experience obtained from years of editing a lit mag. Jody and I have been editing Poet Lore for 13 years.
In my remarks I mentioned how important it was for a person to edit a journal. I view it as "service to the field." I view lit mags as historical documents. It's important that we find ways to develop good editors for the future.
