In Editor Interviews by Susan Maccarelli | | 4 Comments

When I first came across Full Grown People a few months ago, I was sucked into reading essay after essay and extremely impressed by the quality of writing.  I quickly subscribed so I could read the 2 new essays published each week, and added it to the list of places I’d love to get published one day.  I started hearing people talk about the site in the same breath as such coveted sites as New York Times Motherlode, and Brain, Child, and went off to beg its founder, Jennifer Niesslein to chat with me about how my readers can get published there, and vie for a spot in one of her awesome anthologies associated with the site.  She agreed and I’m sharing that interview with you today!
