The Sewanee Review, a 125-year-old literary journal, recently hired writer Adam Ross as its new editor. And as Writer’s Relief learned in this New York Times article, the task of reviving this once revered literary cornerstone would be no small job:
“The journal, which once published works by literary giants like Eudora Welty, William Faulkner, T. S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath, Cormac McCarthy, and Wallace Stevens, was nearly moribund. When Mr. Ross was approached to apply for the position, the review had just a few hundred subscribers, and virtually no web presence. Its plain blue cover hadn’t changed since 1944. Reviving it seemed daunting.”
