With our spring ‘08 issue, Seneca Review inaugurated an interview series with essayists on the subject of the essay form and on the essays of theirs that we’re running. Interviews won’t appear in the mag, however; you can find them online at the SR website along with the essay that’s occasioned it.
Our aim is to create an archive of ideas about the essay and the working aesthetics and practice of writers we’re publishing, writers who are exploring the reaches of the essay form. We’d like, as well, to create an environment for discussion.
