Natalie Axton is a journalist, essayist, and Critic in New York.
I WRITE ABOUT THE ARTS, CULTURE, AND IDEAS. My work has been published in Chronogram, Narratively, Dance Europe, the Weekly Standard, Rye Magazine, Westchester Magazine, and Essay Daily, among others. I work as a reporter for the Darien Times. I was a 2010 NEA Arts Journalism Fellow and I am the Founder and Editorial Director of Critical Read, an online arts magazine launching in summer 2015.
Arlene Croce shocked the arts community in 1995 with her essay "Discussing the Undiscussable." When does a critic go too far and what does the essay mean for writers today?
