Meet Shuchi!

We are thrilled to share that Shuchi Saraswat has joined the Randolph Lundine editorial team!

Shuchi is a writer based in Boston. She founded the Transnational Literature Series at Brookline Booksmith, a reading series focused on themes of migration, and in 2019 she served as a judge for the National Book Award in Translated Literature. She has worked as a creative writing instructor for over a decade and is currently a nonfiction editor at AGNI.

We thought we'd let Shuchi tell you about herself in her own words (and because I always want to know what everyone is reading):

How long have you been an editor? One of my first editor jobs was on the staff of Fringe Magazine, an online literary journal dedicated to experimental literature. That was while I was a graduate student at Emerson College, so fifteen years ago now! I've been teaching creative writing for the last decade or so, and consulting on manuscripts for years. 
 
Do you have an area of specialty, or genres on which you prefer to work?
I'm interested in creative nonfiction (memoirs, essay collections, book length essays) and novels and linked short story collections. I'm interested in writers who like to experiment and push the boundaries of their chosen genre or form, and I have a particular fondness for books that explore ideas of home, migration, language, and identity.
 
What are you reading right now?
I'm usually reading a few books at once! Currently, The Passion According to G.H. by Clarice Lispector (translated from Portuguese by Idra Novey) and The Rings of Saturn by W.G. Sebald (translated from German by Michael Hulse), and I'm revisiting an old favorite, The Situation and the Story by Vivian Gornick, for a class I'm teaching on essay writing.
 
Favorite bookstore? 
I worked at Brookline Booksmith in Brookline, Massachusetts for many years and I could spend hours browsing the books in the Used Book Cellar. I also met my partner there, so I have to say, that's definitely my favorite!
 
Favorite bookish podcast/journal/website/social media follow?
I love David Naimon's Between the Covers podcast. He's interviewed so many authors I admire - Jenny Erpenbeck, Teju Cole, Karthika Naïr, just to name a few recent episodes- and he takes his time, does his research and reading, and the conversations are rich and in-depth. A real treat to listen to.
