. No RSVP necessary
Organized by Lori Cole

Please join us for a three-part series exploring the interview, the questionnaire, and the letter to the editor—three frequently overlooked forms that are nevertheless constitutive of many magazines. Each of these genres serves as a site of interaction between editors, contributors, and readers and is often used to assert or reinforce a magazine’s platform. The series will contextualize the development of each seemingly minor form and investigate its present uses in order to consider the role that it has had in articulating the identity of print publications across history.
