Coming up in this week's Sapling

“I’m a slow writer, and I edit as I go, so when something feels done to me, there usually isn’t much to do. But even [my editor, Dennis Johnson’s] small edits were smart…at first, I’d read them and think, ‘I’m not changing that! How could he ask that of me?!’ And then two days later, I’d realize he was right all along.”—Leigh Stein, author of The Fallback Plan, from this week’s feature interview. Also, we feature the latest from the likes of: Salt Hill! Monkeybicycle! SpringGun Press!
