In February 2012, I gathered together editors of New England literary magazines and proposed that we collaborate on a print anthology series showcasing the best fiction and poetry published by our respective journals. The result was the first volume of Best Indie Lit New England (BILiNE). On October 31, 2014, we successfully concluded our latest Kickstarter campaign, raising over $1,500 to fund the publication of the the second volume.
I serve as the executive editor of the series and manage the project. In this role, I direct the fundraising campaign, organize the submission and selection process, and coordinate the efforts of editors across six states. I also oversee event planning, marketing, and distribution.
In my role as a designer, I craft the print editions of the book, code the ebook editions, and produce promotional media (including shooting and editing our Kickstarter video). I also developed and maintain a responsive website for the project using the Drupal CMS.
