How to Pitch and Edit an Anthology (Video)



Even for experienced editors, developing an anthology is a daunting and unique task. Join our panel of veteran anthology editors—Sari Botton (Goodbye To All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York), Jennifer Baker (Everyday People: The Color of Life—A Short Story Anthology), and Tajja Isen (The World As We Knew It: Dispatches from a Changing Climate)—to learn how to develop an idea for an anthology, pitch it to publishers, solicit and edit work from writers, and pull together a finished book that unites a range of talented voices, all digging deep into a topic you are passionate about. Moderated by Halimah Marcus. Conversation followed by audience Q&A. This event took place on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, as part of Electric Literature’s Summer Salon Series.
