Who among these names are still relevant?

scuttlebutt said...

what does relevant mean in the internet world? or in the literary world at all, where houghfin miller has said it is no longer accepting manuscripts.

most of them have shit at a lot of sites. and that's a lot of material for each one. define has a new story at the-beat.co.uk. van noord was there too, recently.

Spencer dew has a book.

I know that at least three quarters of those people are still publishing.

Relevance isn't a word that means much to me in this conversation. I'm thinking more of accomplishment. The first four did 20-26 stories, each week, for half a year. The next four did 13. Considering each of them is a top-10 Thieves Jargon writer, those are some fairly awesome and very unique chunks of writing.

And I can't believe about Houghton Mifflin. They were the only chance I had to work on fiction in Boston. Even though they've had like one job opening in the past year. I don't know what I'm going to be able to aspire to now.

I was thinking Josh Olsen would have been a good choice for a poet, but we never heard back from him after we sent him a non-traditional rejection notice. Justin Hyde, obviously would have been another good choice for a poet. Jimmy Chen would have been my choice for a fiction writer.
