Event Description: A must for emerging writers: we’ve partnered with Electric Literature and The Authors Guild to present a series of events aimed at giving you the essentials when it comes to your career. In this first of the series, our panelists Yuka Igarashi (Soft Skull Press, Catapult,) Michelle Legro (formerly of New Republic,) and James Yeh (VICE) will discuss how to pitch for online, and the ways in which writing for the web differs to print. Moderated by Dwyer Murphy of Electric Literature. Yuka Igarashi is Editor in Chief of Soft Skull Press and Catapult. She has taught writing at Columbia and Parsons the New School of Design. She was formerly managing editor of Granta. Michelle Legro is the former culture editor at the New Republic. She previously worked as an editor at Lapham's Quarterly. James Yeh is a writer and editor. He is a founding editor of the literary and arts magazine Gigantic and culture editor of VICE. His stories appear in Tin House, BOMB Magazine, and NOON, and his nonfiction appears or is forthcoming in the New York Times, Playboy magazine, and the Paris Review Daily. A recipient of fellowships from the MacDowell Colony and Columbia University, he was named a Center for Fiction New York City Emerging Writers Fellow in 2011, and the writer-in-residence at the Hub City Writers Project in 2014. Dwyer Murphy is a writer based in New York and an associate editor for Electric Literature. He is also a contributing editor for Literary Hub and Guernica.
