I’m the founding editor of JSTOR Daily, an online publication that provides scholarly context for the news. Prior to that I was the digital director at the Poetry Foundation where I used technology to reach a wider audience for poetry. It worked. The app we launched is still one of the most popular literary apps. If anyone wants to help me create a poetry recommendation engine, let me know. I have a Master’s degree in English. In fact, I’m ABD. But no, mom, I’m never going to finish my dissertation.
