Anne Zanoni, Managing Editor
Anne loves words and has the best job ever—copy-editing books. Part of EV since autumn 2008, she discovered that working for multiple ‘zines was a bit wearing, and shifted down to only two ‘zines (from four) when more book-jobs came her way. She lives in the Great Lakes region of the Midwest and is looking for some interesting hobbies.
