Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Tired of hearing all about litmag editors’ submission peeves? Maybe you’ll find comfort in Anthony Martin’s brief list of no-no’s from the submitter’s perspective.”
  • John Vanderslice explains his decision to hire a publicist to help promote his forthcoming story collection (and shares some of the results to date).
  • “My rule of thumb is that a short story of 3,000 words should be rewritten down to 2,500.” This and other nuggets in “How Stephen King Teaches Writing.”
  • Whatever your day job may be, read this before you quit it to “be a writer.” Especially (but, again, not only) if you’re an academic.
  • And speaking of day jobs (and academics), here’s another must-read: Cathy Day on “making sense of creative writing’s job problem.”
  • Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
