“He thought her beautiful, believed her impeccably wise; dreamed of her, wrote poems to her,
which, ignoring the subject, she corrected in red ink.”
—Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway


About Red Ink:

Red Ink is a quarterly series curated and hosted by Michele Filgate, and co-sponsored by Literary Hub.

The next discussion, “Resilience,” will feature Morgan Jerkins (Contributing Editor at Catapult), Jami Attenberg (All Grown Up), Esmé Weijun Wang (The Border of Paradise), Elizabeth Crane (The History of Great Things), and Scaachi Koul (One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter).
