Jessica Powers interviews James Engelhardt, [former] editor of Prarie Schooner, in which reveals his enthusiasm for the literary life: “We keep going over the same ground as humans, as writers, the same emotional or intellectual ground — we keep exploring what it means to be human, finding new ways to explore the human condition. You’d think we’d have done that already, that we would know everything there is to know about love, or loss, but we don’t. The world seems to excite the imagination endlessly.”
James also shares the news that he will be leaving Prairie Schooner to take a new position as acquisitions editor with the University of Alaska Press. Kwame Dawes will be the new editor-in-chief with Prairie Schooner beginning this fall.
We wish both the best in their new roles!
