Style editor Frances Stead Sellers: Call for reader questions

Do you have questions for Style editor Frances Stead Sellers? Sellers took over the Post’s Style section in mid-August, after four years editing health and science stories. She’s a U.K. native and Oxford graduate, who began her Post career at Book World and later worked as deputy Outlook editor.

In addition to continuing Style’s grand tradition of offering an engaging daily mix — from incisive profiles of Washington’s power players and political figures to informed criticism of the arts, theater and books — Sellers aims to build upon the section’s growing Web presence, involving readers with innovative features like a recent callout that asked readers to help the Post map diversity in the D.C. region. The section is also planning to launch a Twitter-fueled successor to the old Style favorite, Autobiography as Haiku.

In the comment thread below, please post your questions about Sellers’s plans for Style, her views on cultural or media matters, her career, etc., and “recommend” the questions you want answered. She’ll respond to the most recommended questions and others by next Friday.
