Mallory Ortberg made the 2015 Forbes magazine list of “30 under 30” media game-changers. She is the co-founder and editor of website The Toast, writes an advice column for Slate, and her first book, Texts from Jane Eyre: and Other Conversations with Your Favourite Literary Characters (Henry Holt & Company) reimagines conversations between literary characters in texting form.

During Writers Week, she talked with Courtney Johnston in the Texts of Toast session and joined New Zealand writer and Youtuber Jamie Curry and singer/writer Lizzie Marvelly for the Life Online session.
