What Fiction Editors Want

'After Keith Haring' by Georgia        

Who among us would-be-emerging writers can afford not to know what kinds of books twenty-three of the UK’s leading fiction editors are looking to commission in 2013? Sometimes specific, sometimes 'I don't know much about art but I know what I like', this compilation of interviews reassures us that editors are fully informed and extremely knowledgable about the world of writing, but at the same time human. It's a reminder that while it's a good idea to keep an antennae on what the market wants, we should only write what we want to write, and hope that the little bit of je ne sais quoi that many of the editors refer to finds its way in there. Thanks Henri and @alisonbarrow for pointing me to the link.
