  • “Poet Mom” January O’Neil just returned from a weekend writing retreat. Here are her 10 tips for making such a retreat successful.
  • I like these “emergency writing motivation techniques” quite a lot! (Hat tip to Fiction Writers Review)
  • If you read yesterday’s “Quotation of the Week,” you already know that I’ve had Eudora Welty on my mind lately. So the time was right for me to discover Peter Orner’s Rumpus.net appreciation for “Eudora Welty, Total Bad Ass.”
  • As always, Midge Raymond has come up with an alluring writing prompt.
  • A few days ago I received the debut issue of Adanna, a new literary journal “for women, about women,” edited by Christine Redman-Waldeyer. Diane Lockward guest-edited this issue, and I’m delighted that she chose my poem, “Umbilicus,” to appear alongside the work of so many talented writers (I’m also grateful for Diane’s wise and gentle editorial suggestions.) The issue’s contents aren’t available online, but you can learn more about the journal here.
  • “None”: singular or plural?
  • If all goes well, I’ll have a sandwich at my desk today at work so I can chime in when the Jewish Book Council’s Twitter Book Club meets over my lunch hour. Today’s book: The Free World, by David Bezmozgis. Why don’t you join us?

    1. Hi Erika–
      Thanks for the mention. I’m happy to know that you’re pleased with the issue. Me too! The table of contents is not posted but the list of contributors is: http://adannajournal.blogspot.com/p/contributors.html
      Wish you could join us for the launch reading on the 26th.
      Diane

      • Thank you, Diane! I wish I could be there, too. Hopefully I’ll catch photos and/or video somewhere. Some people are very good at making those things happen ;-). (No pressure, of course!)
