Pessin is adjunct faculty at California State University, Northridge, where he is the faculty advisor for Northridge Review, the campus’s oldest literary magazine, and director of the Book Arts Lab in the Department of English; a Ph.D. student in Information Studies at UCLA and the Associate Director of Publishing and Pedagogy for the UCLA Library, Ethics, and Justice Lab; and a humanities professor at Colburn School. Pessin’s research interests include pedagogy, digital humanities, book history, book arts, publishing and distribution, and the relationship between ‘the public’ and print culture. His chapbook of TED Talk eavesdropping poems, Thank You for Listening, was published by Mindmade Books in 2017; his fairy tale tryptic, Three Stories, was published by Magra Books in 2021.
