Meet Our New Rumpus Essays Editor!

By

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.


Marisa Siegel lives, writes, and edits near NYC. She holds an MFA in Poetry from Mills College in Oakland, CA. Her essay “Inherited Anger” appears in the anthology Burn It Down (Seal Press, 2019) and her debut poetry chapbook, Fixed Stars, is forthcoming from Burrow Press in 2021. She is editor-in-chief and owner of The Rumpus. Follow her on Twitter @marisasaystweet. More from this author →
