n+personals is a pet project of the original n+1 interns for all the sad young literary people in the world who still haven’t found their +1 (melancholia and relative youth are in fact optional, but if you haven't read Middlemarch/back issues of Harper's/JR we suggest looking elsewhere).
So bang out a few details about yourself and what you’re looking for, and submit a personal. The posts will be kept anonymous. Those that request contact will be given your email; how you choose to respond to their attempt at an epistolary exchange has nothing to do with us. Assume everyone lives in New York, unless otherwise specified.
The title of your ad will be generated in-house, because: (1) how else does the lowly intern get her kicks? and (2) said intern lacks the gravitas to stomach even one request for "Madame Bovary, c'est moi."
As of December, we are pleased to announce a partnership with the New York Review of Books.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not have the ability or resources to screen the past sexual or emotional or indeed criminal histories of the lonesome souls submitting to this site. Please be careful. Safety first, kids! (Not-fun fact: 10% of sex offenders use online dating to meet their, um, victims!)
We'd like to thank Keith, Carla, Mark, Marco, Chad, and Ben for ceding editorial oversight to the interns.
Finally we encourage everyone and their mothers to read or, better yet, subscribe to n+1.
