Friday Finds for Writers
For the weekend: some writing-related reflections, news, and resources to enjoy.
Some thoughtful reflections on and suggestions for “Pushing Through the Perils of Teaching Online.”
Lee Gutkind’s recent “Opinionator” piece provides an excellent reminder of the primacy of scenes. (Not surprisingly, Gutkind’s focus here is nonfiction, but frankly, I often find scenes more challenging when I’m writing fiction.)
A vicarious trip to the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, courtesy of poet Chloe Yelena Miller. (Reminder: If you may be interested in attending Bread Loaf–or writing conferences more generally–and you live in the Boston area, there’s still time to sign up for this seminar at Grub Street.)
Great news from Wordamour (hint: something to do with a literary agent). Congratulations, Steph!
And ending on another happy note: a nice development in the story of The Writer magazine.
Enjoy the weekend, everyone. It’s a holiday weekend here in the U.S.A., but I’ll bring you a post on Monday nonetheless.
