In December of 2019, former journal staff Emma and Shalvi got to sit down with poet and publisher, Joe Pan:
Joe Pan is the author of five poetry collections and coeditor of the popular Brooklyn Poets Anthology. His work has appeared in such publications as the Boston Review, Hyperallergic, The New York Times, and The Philadelphia Review of Books. Pan is the founder, publisher, and editor-in-chief of Brooklyn Arts Press, an independent publishing house honored in 2016 with a National Book Award win in Poetry for Daniel Borzutzky's "The Performance of Becoming Human"
He is also the publisher of Augury Books, whose book "& more black" by T’ai Freedom Ford won the 2020 LAMBDA Literary award in lesbian poetry.
He came on the podcast to promote his new book of poetry, operating systems.
