Taeckens Moving to Graywolf Press from Algonquin

Effective April 16, Michael Taeckens is joining Graywolf Press as marketing director. He has worked at Algonquin Books for more than 11 years, first as publicity director, then as online and paperback marketing director.

At Algonquin, he headed publicity campaigns for more books and authors than we can count. He also launched the house's social media outlets, created the Lucky 7 e-book promotion and started the Algonquin Book Club series of events and webcasts pairing Algonquin authors.

If the move seems like a big one geographically--to Minneapolis, Minn., from Chapel Hill, N.C.--Graywolf noted that Taeckens is a native Midwesterner and has an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop.
