About GalleyCat.com
Though we currently don’t have the archives to prove it, GalleyCat launched in September, 2004, and has since been providing daily updates on Sara Nelson’s whereabouts, the NYTBR‘s downward trajectory, Steve Wasserman’s functional autism, underage writers’ sex memoir advances, Judith Regan’s cussword-neologisms, and the reincarnated-Andy Kaufman’s ULA shenanigans.

In reality, we’ve been much more tame than that — but GC’s redesign also marks a shift in focus, from well-rounded literary linkage to a more deviant, Spiers-inflected interest in publishing news & industry gossip.

To that end, GC welcomes any and all reader contributions; deposit suggestions, links, gossip, and criticism in our Anonymous Tip box, or get in touch with Nathalie, GC’s editor, at galleycatATmediabistroDOTcom.

About Nathalie Chicha
Nathalie is a graduate of Brown University (class of 2002) and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop (fiction, 2004). She moved to New York in September, and writes GalleyCat from home, in a growing assortment of unphotogenic pajamas.
