Today's post features Dennis Drabelle. In addition to being a contributing editor at Book World, Dennis teaches the "Book Reviewing" workshop here at the Center. Many of you may know that Book World has its own blog, "Short Stack." Last Friday he posted an interesting piece on Barack Obama's reading habits (and the reading of fiction). The link is here.
Here's a short Bio:
Dennis Drabelle has been an editor with the Washington Post Book World since 1984. His reviews have appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Smithsonian, The Nation, Outside, and Salon.com. In 1996 he won the National Book Critics Circle's award for excellence in reviewing.
And I want to point out C.M. Mayo's comment on a recent WC blog post. She provided a link to her blog with relevant information on lit agents (from fellow instructor Lindsey Maines). Right here.
