We’re thrilled to announce that Silvia Killingsworth will be
joining us here in April. Silvia is currently the Managing Editor
of the New Yorker, where she has spent the last seven years
managing the workflow of the magazine. (You may also know her from
the web’s greatest food vertical, De Gustibus.) Silvia’s
breadth of experience and wealth of ideas and just genuine
enthusiasm (an emotion you may have noticed as being in short
supply over the last, say, seven years here) about things make her
the clear and obvious choice to head The Awl as it evolves into
its next stage of life.
Great hire. Go Awl.
