It’s Official — I’m EDF’s Managing Editor! 2 September 2009

We changed the staff page today, so it’s public news: I am now the Managing Editor of Every Day Fiction.

Jordan’s new title — and just so everyone is clear, he’s not abandoning EDF at all, nor being pushed out, nor anything like that — is Executive Editor, which I think fits his new role perfectly. He’ll still be involved in the direction of the magazine, he just won’t be working on the day-to-day business of reading and accepting/rejecting submissions. The plan is that this will free up his time to do some of the things that we’ve always talked about but never were able to make time to do: promoting the site, organizing competitions, and so on.

This is a good thing for EDF. We’ve grown to the point where the magazine really does need someone in an executive role, handling the big picture, and Jordan does that really well.

This is also a good thing for me. I enjoy the hands-on editorial work and would miss it much more than Jordan will — I think I’d be unhappy in a purely executive role — and I’m already liking the power of being the final decision-maker for story acceptances.

I’m also excited to see what Jordan will do in his new role. We’ve already talked about something interesting for later this year… I can’t reveal it yet, it’s all confidential… but it’s going to be awesome!
