Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • As happy as I was to meet my 2014 Goodreads Reading Challenge, I couldn’t help thinking that I should have read more poetry during the past 12 months. So I’m grateful for this Page-Turner post featuring some of The New Yorker‘s 2014 poems.
  • My job change in summer 2014 has led to less of a focus for me on freelancing tips. But if freelance writing is *your* thing, you should perhaps take a look at these “17 Super-Useful Posts About Story Ideas, Article Writing, Interviews, and Editors” over on Carol Tice’s Make a Living Writing blog.
  • As one of the few people on the planet who has ever heard an episode of Serial, I probably won’t stun anyone with the news that my forays into podcasts are few and infrequent. But I do plan to listen this weekend to the 100th episode of Gil Roth’s “The Virtual Memories” show. Gil’s is one of the few podcast series that I *do* make an effort to keep up with, and this episode seems especially intriguing to me: “For the 100th episode of The Virtual Memories Show, we bring you an interview with your podcast host, Gil Roth! Thirty past and future guests provide the questions for an in-depth conversation about books and life. Find out about my reading childhood, my dream list of pod-guests, my best practices for productivity (don’t have kids!), my favorite interview question, my top guest in the afterlife, the book I’d save if my house was on fire, what I’d do if I won a Macarthur Grant. and more!”
  • I’m proud to say that I’m not often guilty of committing the top offense cited within the NPR Grammar Hall of Shame. (But that doesn’t mean that I’m *always* so innocent!)
  • And to conclude, a reminder for those who may be inclined to be interested: I maintain an entirely separate blog, My Machberet, in which I focus on literary and other matters of primarily Jewish interest.

  • 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!
