Scott Lindenbaum

Scott Lindenbaum is the the Co-Publisher and Editor of Electric Literature, a new publisher dedicated to using electronic media and innovative distribution to keep literature a vital part of popular culture. The Washington Post has called his efforts “A refreshingly bold act of optimism,” and The New York Times has said that Electric Literature publishes “The country’s best writers,” including Pulitzer Prizewinner Michael Cunningham, MacArthur “genius” grant winners Colson Whitehead and Lydia Davis, and literary heavyweights Jim Shepard, Rick Moody, and J Robert Lennon, among others. For almost ten years Scott was a half-pipe snowboard competitor, sponsored by Burton Snowboards. It was only after a near-fatal collision with a birch tree in 2001 that reading, writing, editing, and technology became central in his life.
