Writers & Editors Symposium: Marriages in Limbo

Writers & Editors Symposium: Marriages in Limbo

This symposium brought together a master moderator/poet and two prominent members of the New York literary scene to read from their works and discuss the ins and outs of the literary business. Drawing on their deep experience, Daniel Menaker and Roger Rosenblatt, along with Billy Collins, offered an inside view of how editors and writers manage their delicate negotiations in a time when communications technology seems to be threatening the print medium.
