Since spring of 2017, I have worked as the Assistant Editor for Escape Pod, the internet’s premier science fiction podcast. Every week Escape Pod offers you short stories from some of today’s best science fiction writers, in convenient audio format for listening pleasure, and in full text on the website.
As Assistant Editor, my primary job is to ride herd on the slush queue (the submissions pile). That involves choosing which stories to pass up to our illustrious Co-Editors, Divya Breed and Mur Lafferty; and it also involves managing our team of amazing Associate Editors who do the first line of reading. If you’d like to learn more about how this process works, check out my writeup here. I also collect and record the monthly listener feedback sections, so I love it when our listeners and readers post comments on the Escape Artist forums.
