The Editor as Citizen of Letters

9:00 am

12:00 pm

Oscar Villalon

Oscar is the managing editor at the literary journal ZYZZYVA. His writing has appeared in Freeman’s, the Virginia Quarterly Review, The Believer, Literary Hub, and other publications, and in the anthology, There’s a Revolution Outside, My Love: Letters from a Crisis (Vintage). A former board member of the National Book Critics Circle, and a former book editor at the San Francisco Chronicle, he was the chair of the 2021 Pulitzer Prize fiction jury.

Synopsis

An axiom about newsrooms is that in the drawer of every editor and reporter, there’s a novel being worked on. This is a testament to the love of writing—and reading—inherent to the vocation of journalism. It also points to an opportunity to examine how literature—from fiction to biographies to histories—can inform the editor's vision in their role as a guide to the chronicling of their community. An overview of the ways literature could expand upon what is published and how it is written will be discussed.
