I’m very sad to say that, at least for the foreseeable future, last Wednesday was Jedediah Berry‘s last day in the office at Small Beer Press.
Jed has been involved with the press since 2004 when he was in the MFA program at UMass Amherst. A couple of years later we hired him and in the last couple of years he has both acquired a couple of books for the press (and therefore becoming an Acquiring Editor) and also gone freelance in preparation for leaving.
He will of course remain editorially involved with the press for as long as he wants but he has some wonderful opportunities lined up that will soon take him away from the Happy Valley—we’re so sad . . . but also very happy for him!
Jed has been a real anchor for the press—especially so in the last two years. Without him I don’t know that the press would have survived our move to Boston. We will miss him more than we can say. Thanks for everything, Jed.
And, bon voyage!
