We're happy to share the news that Rob Spillman, editor and co-founder of the literary magazine Tin House, has been awarded the PEN/Nora Magid Award for Editing.
From the judges: "Year after year, Rob Spillman has been committed to both the trajectory of literature in America and the diversity of its writers. As editor and cofounder of Tin House, which launched in 1999, Rob has consistently sought and published distinctly literary work: fiction with a strong narrative voice; elegant, incisive poetry; intelligent, absorbing essays, interviews, and features; and a 'Lost & Found' section for under appreciated books unearthed by contemporary writers—all of this packaged in a handsome edition that is as much a joy to hold as to read. Rob has also expanded Tin House’s online presence, offering a significant amount of current and back issue content and a richly curated, daily updated blog. By including a wide range of writers, seeking new and unpublished voices, and being on the forefront of the move from print to digital, Rob Spillman has created an inclusive, vibrant literary community at Tin House, one that provides an encouraging glimpse into the future of letters."
