Susan Woodring shares generous New Year’s wishes for practicing writers. Meantime, here are some excellent New Year’s resolutions from independent publicist Dana Kaye (thanks to @_joycastro for pointing me to the latter).
@SocialDialect recommends a post that features 10 blogs about blogging, “because we can all use more resources.”
The New York Times profiles the Hmong American Writers’ Circle–and its preoccupations. (See also the sample writings.)
The Millions previews highly anticipated books coming in 2012. (Hint for those who want to build a book-reviewing practice–you may find some forthcoming titles for review pitches here.)
In case you’ve ever wondered exactly what a “poetry chapbook” is, Brian Klems explains.
