UNM Press, has spent several summers in Taos, consulting with participants of the Taos Summer Writers' Conference. This year is no different. She will be scheduling individual consultations again at the 16th annual Conference.
She recently did an interview with Kirkus in which she talks about her experience working in the University Press corner of the publishing industry. "What I really like about university presses is that we are uniquely positioned to support regional writing and books of literary merit that are wonderfully written and need to be out and available to a larger audience." Elise will schedule her consultations when the Conference begins on July 13th, so keep an eye out at the registration table. We are thrilled and grateful to have her back!
Elise McHugh is senior acquisitions editor of humanities and arts at the University of New Mexico Press and acquires in several fields, including poetry, fiction, memoir, pop culture, cultural and literary criticism, and art, photography, and architecture. She lives in Albuquerque.
