The Paris Review said on Tuesday that Emily Stokes will be its new editor, making her the sixth person to lead the prestigious New York-based literary magazine since its founding in 1953.
On March 3, the magazine announced that its previous editor, Emily Nemens, was stepping down less than three years after she had assumed the role.
Stokes has been a senior editor at The New Yorker since 2018. She has also worked as an editor at T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Harper’s Magazine and The Financial Times.
Before Nemens, The Paris Review’s editors have been Lorin Stein, who resigned in 2017 amid an internal inquiry into allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment, Philip Gourevitch, Brigid Hughes and George Plimpton, a co-founder of the magazine.
