Writing and Publishing After Bard

Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium

The Written Arts Program will host a special panel on Writing and Publishing After Bard with distinguished guests who will talk about their experiences as writers, novelists, journalists, and editors. We will discuss how to generate stories for publication, how to find internships and jobs in publishing, how to submit stories and essays to literary journals for publication, and how careers in publishing and writing have evolved and continue to evolve.

Guest Speakers:

Nicole Nyhan is the managing editor of Conjunctions. A graduate of Bard College and the New School for Social Research, she has served on the editorial staffs of Grove Atlantic, Atavist Books, and Other Press.

Jonny Diamond is the editor-in-chief of Lithub.com. His fiction and nonfiction has appeared in the Missouri Review, Geist, Hobart Pulp, Rolling Stone, Literary Hub, and elsewhere. He is currently working on a book-length object history of the axe, part investigation of its symbolism in America’s westward expansion, part interrogation of contemporary tropes of masculinity and wilderness.

Wyatt Mason is a Bard professor and contributing editor of the New York Times Magazine and Harper’s. He also writes for the London Review of Books and the New Republic among many other publications. The Modern Library has published his translations of the complete works of Arthur Rimbaud in two volumes. His translations of Dante’s La Vita Nuova and Montaigne’s Essais are in progress.
