Friday Finds for Writers

Treasure ChestWriting-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.

  • In which Eric Bennett argues that–and explains how, in his view–“Iowa flattened literature.”
  • Love this piece by Michael Piafsky on what he learned from his time working at The Missouri Review.
  • A handy guide to pronouncing “tricky author names.”
  • Ellen Meeropol has been thinking about blurbs. (As I’ve done in the past.)
  • If, like me, you missed the chance to see the Elif Batuman/Gary Shteyngart double-feature at the 92nd Street Y earlier this month, you can catch the video here.
  • Happy weekend, everyone.

    1. The pieces by Bennett and Piafsky were really, really good, for very different reasons, obviously. The Bennett thing creeped me out entirely just a few paragraphs in and had me gasping at the next one.
