Hi. I’m Charlotte Shane, a writer and publisher.
I contribute regularly to Bookforum, Dissent, and TLS. My primary focus in 2019 is finishing Tell Me You're Happy to See Me for Simon & Schuster. I have poor self-discipline, so please wish me luck.
I publish the books 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. You should have been there! Richard Hell was in the front row.
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.
