I wrote an essay for The James Franco Review in response to The Offing's reply to my essay on inclusive literary journals. This was difficult for me to write, and risky, but I felt it was deeply necessary to stand up against censorship, and for two contributors to my original piece, who were unjustly maligned in The Offing's comment. As difficult as this was, it felt especially important now.
I had the pleasure of participating in a panel at last year's AWP organized by the JFR folks, and I was so impressed by how deeply they consider every aspect of publishing their journal. You guys are the future. Thank you for supporting my work.
