Five Questions for n+1 Magazine

empire state

We’re working on a New Pop Lit “Opinion” piece about New York City-based literary magazine n+1. They were given the opportunity to answer a few questions, which they passed on. Still, the questions are worth posting publicly, on the off chance that one of their staffers cares to answer them.

1.) Has n+1 made too many compromises with institutional power and money?

2.) Have there been internal disputes at n+1 regarding outreach to individuals of extreme power and money?

3.) Does such outreach harm n+1’s credibility?

4.) Does the Daniel Handler incident reveal a problem with racism and privilege at the core of New York’s literary scene?

5.) Was Frank Guan told not to answer questions about his Tao Lin essay at n+1, once the scandal hit?
