I've been a journalist (at FactCheck.org), a news writer (at Grist), an opinion columnist (at the Guardian), and a freelance writer of essays, fiction, and prose poetry. I was the founding editor of Archipelago, a contributing editor for The Establishment, and I'm now editor-in-chief of Electric Literature. I'm interested in puzzles, monsters, feelings, gender, nonlinear stories, cocktails, witches, magical realism, bears, dogs, unexamined assumptions, smashing patriarchy, some but not all robots, Shakespeare's histories, and funny science fiction from the '70s and '80s. I live in Brooklyn with a dog and a human and nine remote-controlled lamps, and spend most of my time aging, feeling bad about aging, or frequently both.
