Bellevue Literary Review Editor Interviewed

harding.jpgYesterday novelist Paul Harding (pictured) won the Pulitzer Prize for his Bellevue Literary Press novel Tinkers– a major award for an indie press operated out of the Bellevue Hospital Center.

In February, we interviewed editor and author Danielle Ofri. Ofri is the editor in chief of Bellevue Literary Review and a member of the indie press’ Board of Advisors. In honor of this momentous award, we are posting an encore edition of her interview–including information about pitching the literary journal and more about her recent book.

Press play on the embedded player below to listen. The show will be archived around the mediabistro.com network all morning.

She offered this advice for writers looking to pitch the journal: “What we’re looking for at the Bellevue Literary Review (or anything literary) is something that actually transcends the plot of what happened to reveal some greater truth about what happened… I would recommend reading the Review to see how other people interpret these issues.”
