Abby Travis is the Engagement Coordinator at Milkweed Editions. Prior to joining Milkweed in 2015, Abby served as Senior Editorial Assistant for Ploughshares and worked under the academic dean on program development and communications in the Office of the School of the Arts at Emerson College in Boston. She has also taught literature at Gustavus Adolphus College and writing at Emerson College, where she earned her MFA with a focus in creative nonfiction.
I work at Milkweed because, as a writer, I believe that all members of the literary ecosystem—from publishers to readers, educators to writers, donors to book-buyers—share responsibility for supporting, connecting, and challenging critical cultural conversations.
Abby is responsible for driving engagement with our on- and off-line communities. She also manages the internship program. Please contact her with any questions regarding internships, special events and partnerships, our digital presence, or communications.
