Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • In which Joseph Levens, writer and lit-mag editor, offers thanks “to those journals that, despite thick and thin and trends and pressures, have not imposed a fee” for submissions. (Amen, brother.)
  • Thoughtful piece on university-level creative-writing study, by Mary Collins, for the Washington Independent Review of Books. (On a related note, you may wish to revisit this piece of mine on the Poets & Writers website.)
  • “8 New Twitter Features for 2016” (including, yes, that rumored extended-character feature.)
  • Speaking of Twitter: If you’re looking for some book-marketing tweeps to follow there, @cksyme has a few suggestions.
  • And this week, Shulem Deen won an National Jewish Book Award for his memoir All Who Go Do Not Return. Last month, I had the opportunity to hear him give the keynote address at a Jewish Book Council conference. And now, the JBC has published his “Top 10 Rules for Memoir Writing.” PS: You’ll find lots more about This Week in #JewLit Awards over on the My Machberet blog.
  • Have a great weekend.

    1. Writing better doesn’t hurt. (Though it does require study and exercising the writing muscle.)
