Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • “One new maxim that all those pitchfork-wielding warriors on social media might like to abide by: Even while disagreeing with your elders and (far) betters, respect them.” A closing suggestion in Lizzie Crocker’s thoughtful “How Literary Idols Get Burned on Twitter.”
  • I’m behind on a lot of my reading (what else is new?), but I have actually managed to get to Lara Vapnyar’s short story in this week’s New Yorker; here’s Vapnyar’s exchange with Deborah Treisman on said story.
  • In which Marie Myung-Ok Lee discovers “what AWP is truly about, beyond the panels, the parties, and the photos.”
  • Amanda Turner recently returned from her very first AWP, but she seems to have figured out a lot about the conference already.
  • I spent some time this week updating the “Where to Publish Your Work” page on this website. Check it out if you’re so inclined.
  • Have a good weekend, everyone, and if you’re celebrating Passover: Chag Pesach Sameach!
