Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • From the NPR Social Media Desk: “What We Can Learn from the Kardashians.” (Did I really just write that?)
  • Looking for some prompts? Check out these 500 samples “for narrative and personal writing” from the New York Times Learning Network. (Thanks to Lisa Romeo for this find.)
  • Much to my chagrin, I missed the AP’s holiday-themed Style Chat earlier this week. Thankfully, Poynter had me covered.
  • Many congratulations to the latest group of poets to have won fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.
  • I’m consistently impressed by (and, truth be told, a little envious of) my writer friends who seem to be as gifted/talented in other artistic areas as they are in writing. Latest example/reminder: Deonne Kahler, photographer.
  • Happy weekend!

  • ICYMI: The December issue of The Practicing Writer has gone out to subscribers. As always, it is packed with no-fee competition info and (paying) calls for submissions.

  • From Framingham State University (Massachusetts): “The English Department invites gifted writers and teachers to apply for a tenure-track position to teach creative writing, first-year writing, and literature.”
  • “Aesop seeks dedicated and enthusiastic individuals to manage our store in Chelsea, New York City. This unique store was created in collaboration with the Paris Review.”
  • Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore) is looking for a writer who “will assist with web writing for the Hub, the news website of Johns Hopkins University.”

    Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Tough talk for writers–but also very true talk–from Chuck Wendig. (h/t @ElectricLit)
  • Another not-quite-so-encouraging item: “How Personal Essays Conquered Journalism — and Why They Can’t Cut It,” by Eve Fairbanks. Some valid criticisms here.
  • On a more positive note: Nina Badzin shares “10 Resources for Writers & Bloggers.”
  • Also encouraging: Over on the Ploughshares blog, literary agent Eric Nelson argues for “Short Stories as a Path to Literary Success”.
  • “A to X Writing Advice, Courtesy of [Random House] Copy Chief Benjamin Dreyer”–via the Brevity blog.
  • Have a great weekend.
