Hi. I’m Charlotte Shane, a writer and publisher.
My primary focus for this year is finishing Tell Me You're Happy to See Me for Simon & Schuster. I have poor self-discipline, so please wish me luck.
I used to freelance more frequently but lately Bookforum is the only magazine in which you’ll regularly find my byline. I just can’t say no to them.
I publish the work of writers I admire through TigerBee Press, which I cofounded in 2015. Our most recent title is I Love Art. We also make cards, prints, totes—whatever we’re in the mood for.
In the image above, two dear friends are presenting me with an award for being the worst woman. This picture was taken at New York’s Ace Hotel in May of 2018 by Seze Devres, on the final night of a monthly reading series I hosted for two years.

Saying It For Themselves (Bookforum)
I still have a tiny letter which I use very rarely to share essays that don’t appear anywhere else. It’s free to join.
I’m represented by Samantha Shea at Georges Borchardt. My social media profiles are linked below. If you like cats you’ll love my Instagram stories and yes, I have a Soundcloud profile but no, I am not a rapper.
