We’re beyond bummed to let you know that Roxane Gay is leaving the Rumpus to focus on other endeavors (like her two new books, the recent novel An Untamed State and the imminently forthcoming essay collection Bad Feminist). Roxane is as much a part of the site as anyone, and we hope she won’t be stranger around here.
Luckily, she’s leaving us in good hands. We’re happy to welcome Mary-Kim Arnold as our new Essays Editor! You can get to know Mary-Kim on tumblr, twitter, facebook, and instagram—and of course, here on the Rumpus.
