The Paris Review announced Tuesday that Emily Stokes will be its new editor. This makes her the sixth person to head the renowned New York literary magazine since it was founded in 1953.
On March 3, the magazine announced that its former editor Emily Nemens was stepping down less than three years after taking office.
Stokes has been Senior Editor at The New Yorker since 2018. She also worked as an editor at T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Harper’s Magazine, and The Financial Times.
Prior to Nemens, Paris Review editors Lorin Stein, who resigned in 2017 following an internal investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment, were Philip Gourevitch, Brigid Hughes and George Plimpton, the magazine’s co-founders.
