The Marginalian


Hello! There is only one of me (Maria) — no staff, no interns, no assistant: a truly one-woman labor of love — which means that even if I ceased writing The Marginalian and made email my full-time job, I would be unable to read, much less respond to, everything. Please be kind and follow the guidelines below to spare us both the anguish of an impossible asymmetry.
