Letters congratulates long-time contributor Eric Peterson (Out & About) on being named Interim Managing Editor of Amble Press. (Amble Press is an imprint of Bywater Books and is dedicated to uplifting underrepresented voices in the LGBTQ+ literary community.) We also congratulate Amble Press on securing his services—it looks like a win-win to us.
Aside from his column in Letters, Eric is a novelist (Loyalty, Love, & Vermouth) and playwright. Somehow, he also has found time over the past 20 years to work as an award-winning Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practitioner, operating his own DEI consulting firm, Red Seven Consulting. In his spare time, he hosts a podcast, The Rewind Project, devoted to movies from the past—both recent and distant.
Letters wishes Eric the best of luck—and an influx of energy—as he undertakes his newest endeavor. ▼
