Remembering the 1970s

"Nobody told us our voices were wrong": Cheryl Savageau on Etheridge Knight, the Free People's Workshop, and the oversize mill town that was the unlikely center of poetry in New England.


On Editing

Deborah Treisman

“That’s what editors do. For us, the work is not about us. It’s about the writer and the text, and immersing yourself in the voice of the story and leaving your own voice somewhere else, where it can nag your kids, or compare notes with your husband, or sing in the shower.” —Deborah Treisman, accepting the 2019 Deborah Pease Prize
