Editor of 75-year-old lit mag takes us behind the scenes
This was such a wonderful interview, Becky. I'm very glad I went! You do good work!!
What a great interview. Deitz would take her place easily at the Alonquin table. She is an editor in the old-style, looking for substance and not just style, looking for "something better." Write it better. Then submit it to the Hudson Review. Brilliant. Thank you, Becky.
Thank you for this! Also: I sort of love that they only take poetry submissions via snail mail.
Thank you so much for doing this interview today, Becky. The Hudson Review is one of only four
periodicals to which I subscribe (the others are The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and Dapped Things). I wish I could pay for more, but I can't afford to.
A. E. Stallings and Dana Gioia are two of my top favorite living poets of all time, and both of them are in the latest edition of THR. I loved the long A. E. Stallings piece, and it was so lovely to hear the background about it in this video.
It is one of my dreams to have a poem of mine in THR. I don't have anything appropriate yet.
And, Becky, I just wanted to again thank you for everything you do. This LitMags is definitely a must read every time it appears in my inbox.
Thank you for posting this. I look forward to reading the Stallings piece. THR wasn’t really on my radar before now, but I see a lot of its content is available online, so I will be spending some time there. Someday I might submit to them, but snail mail is a pain.
Wonderful summary of a lively interview. Thanks!
My experience with this "open to the writers" lit mag is to report it to Duotrope as "never responded" after 458 days. Duotrope statistics indicate 0 - zero - acceptances, so there's not a single Duotrope subscriber worthy of The Hudson Review. Meh.
I listened this evening. I loved this interview. You do a great job! I was invigorated by her enthusiasm for The Hudson Review, her work, writing, and ideas.
