Superstition Review: What is your position with Superstition Review and what are your responsibilities?
Gina Rossi: As Fiction Editor, my responsibilities mainly involve reading submissions and giving my input on what gets published.
SR: How did you hear about Superstition Review and what made you decide to get involved?
GR: I was looking for a publishing related internship and heard about SR through one of my professors. It seemed like the perfect internship for someone looking to learn more about the publishing field.
SR: What are you hoping to take away from your Superstition Review experience?
GR: I hope to read a lot of great fiction, improve my own writing/interviewing skills, and learn as much as possible about publishing an online literary magazine.
SR: Describe one of your favorite literary or artistic works.
GR: Artistic work would have to be Picasso’s Guernica. I saw all 26 ft. x 11 ft. of it in person and it’s breathtaking, very odd but inspiring. As far as literary work, anything Jane Austen will do.
SR: What are you currently reading?
GR: Being Dead by Jim Crace.
SR: Who would be the Superstition Review contributor of your dreams?
GR: Andrea Avery Decker.
SR: Do you write or create art? What are you currently working on?
GR: I write short fiction. During the school semesters it’s hard for me to give ample amounts time to my personal projects so I’m writing drafts of stories for my classes.
SR: Besides interning for Superstition Review, how do you spend your time?
GR: I travel to San Diego a lot to spend time with my boyfriend. I enjoy photography, specifically black and white film photography that I develop myself. I love to bake/cook, read, learn yoga, and spend time with family.
SR: What is your favorite mode of relaxation?
GR: Ben & Jerry’s and a good classic movie–something Audrey Hepburn.
SR: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
GR: I’m hoping to be published by then, and happy, definitely happy.
