Emily writes (I’m the only person who contributes to the “Personal” category, but it’s always safe to specify):
I’m incredibly pleased to announce that the panel I proposed for the next South By Southwest Interactive has been accepted out of more than 2,300 submissions—and was in the first batch of the first day of announcements, no less. The lineup of speakers is likely to change slightly, as will the nuances of the discussion, but the longhorn and short of it is, I’ll be in Austin come March in my first official role as a content strategist, or critic of content strategy, or strategic content provider, or online publisher, or maybe just—editor/writer.
If you’re planning to be at SXSW, I’d love to hear from you, and if you have any more suggestions about what I should cover at this event, please let me know!
Hello! I’m Emily Gordon, an editor, critic, copywriter, and internet lover since 1992. Emdashes, born in 2004, spent many years as a New Yorker fan blog. The project garnered some nice compliments and press.
The blog’s now treading the territories of punctuation, publications, movies, design, and other things that stir me.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a brilliant brigade of culture writers, editors, and artists. You can read all about the people who've helped build Emdashes here at “Who We?” (That’s a New Yorker joke. Old habits die hard.)
I welcome submissions, questions, corrections, and ardent, obsessive contributors. I also host occasional book-related contests and giveaways. Questioners and publishers, just email me.
The original Emdashes pencil logo was designed by Jennifer Hadley, based on a 1943 Dorothy Gray ad.
