I’m happy to introduce to you our second prose editor, Lindsey Griffin.  Lindsey’s conception of the fiction and nonfiction we’ll publish here at the museum of americana is eclectic and playful. She’s full of ideas about the kind of work she’d like to see, but, as she puts it, “There are really limitless ways to incorporate Americana into [prose]. Part of the reason I am interested in this project is to see what other writers will come up with.”  Read a little bit more about Lindsey here.

Lindsey Griffin hails from the Chicago area and holds an MFA from the University of Miami. In the past year, she has traded large reptiles, sultry heat, and an inflatable kayak for the hills and long summer light of southeastern Minnesota. Her current interests include iconic infrastructure from the Gilded Age and Progressive Era and the landscapes of south Florida and the upper Midwest. She resides in a 110-year-old house, hangs out at local history museums, teaches English, and pales in anticipation of forthcoming winters.

We now have all of our editors in place and are working diligently behind the scenes to prepare for our upcoming special reading period which begins August 20th. Get those manuscripts ready!
