Announcing the 2021 Editorial Fellow

March 13, 2021

I’ve always loved books—as simple pastimes, mechanisms for self-expression, endlessly generative fields of study—and I’ve always wanted to have a hand in that essential work.
—Miguel Coronado

We are delighted to announce Miguel Coronado as the 2021 A Public Space Editorial Fellow. This March, he joins A Public Space for a nine-month fellowship that integrates mentorship, the opportunity for innovation, and hands-on training in all aspects of editing, from evaluating submissions through to publication of a piece.

The Editorial Fellowship at A Public Space was established with the support of the 2018 Whiting Literary Magazine Prize and in the belief that to realize true diversity in literature, there must be opportunities not only for the writers but also the editors. The program aims to support the next generation of editors who will create a more diverse and vibrant publishing community—culturally, aesthetically, economically—and to develop a framework for the art of editing, bridging tradition and evolution.

We are grateful to the generous donors who share our commitment to this mission, and helped to make possible the second year of the Editorial Fellowship. Thank you also to everyone who promoted and shared news of the program. Most of all, thank you to all of the applicants, whose talent and imagination give us hope for the future.

Miguel Coronado is a poet and aspiring editor from the Bronx. He has interned in academic publishing at W. W. Norton and has a BA in English and creative writing from New York University. Whether in poetry or publishing, he is interested in how literature generates spaces of access across any distance.
