A great desire for The Champagne Room is for our literary project to exist as a space beyond the journal, for the journal to simply be one piece of a constant conversation between readers, writers, creators, friends. One way in which we are making this happen is by featuring dialogues with past and present contributors to The Champagne Room. In a world where submissions get accepted and then generally forgotten over time, we hope these exchanges will create conducive avenues to change the culture of the literary community. May these conversations inspire you to keep communication about literature alive in your own way.
