As fiction editor of The New Yorker, Deborah Treisman is one of the most influential arbiters of literary taste on either side of the Atlantic. She not only hand-picks New Yorker short stories, but also edits the works of literary luminaries such as Alice Munro, Haruki Murakami and Salman Rushdie. She and The Guardian‘s Hadley Freeman will discuss journalism in general, The New Yorker in particular and, perhaps, who might be the up-and-coming literary wunderkinds.

Deborah Treisman

Deborah Treisman is The New Yorker’s fiction editor. She joined the magazine’s fiction department at 27 and is the first woman to hold the fiction editor title since Katharine White established the department in 1925.

Hadley Freeman

Hadley Freeman is the author of The Meaning of Sunglasses, Be Awesome and House of Glass and has been a Guardian columnist and staff writer since 2000, where she writes the popular Ask Hadley fashion column. She also contributes to Vogue. She lives in New York and London.
