What does it mean to be a woman at work in the creative arts in 2019? The Paris Review’s new editor, Emily Nemens, reflects on this question through the lens of the storied literary quarterly’s Writers at Work interview series, the work of contemporary contributors, and her own creative practice as a writer and illustrator.
Emily Nemens joined The Paris Review as editor in 2018. Stories published during her tenure at The Southern Review were selected for the Pushcart Prize anthology, Best American Short Stories, the O. Henry Prize anthology, and the inaugural edition of PEN America Best Debut Fiction. Her debut novel, The Cactus League, is forthcoming from FSG, and her stories can be found in The Iowa Review, The Gettysburg Review, and n+1.
