A few morsels to brighten up your middle-of-the-week:
- Book clubs are one thing. Literary magazine clubs are another.
- Not sure how I missed the fact that The Christian Science Monitor has a books blog (“Chapter and Verse“), but that lacuna in my knowledge (and our blogroll) has now been remedied.
- Nice recap of a Literary Translation Roundtable that took place at the recent conference of the American Literary Translators’ Association.
- Yet another gem from Fiction Writers Review: This time, FWR brings us an exceptional, four-participant reflection on the 2010 Sozopol Fiction Seminar. As always, the layout and images are also superlative.
- Advice for ghostwriters: Ten Signs to Run Away from a Potential Client.
- Two poetry-related items: Ron Hogan’s report on an event featuring W.S. Merwin and Mark Edmundson’s take on the contemporary relevance of William Blake’s “London.” (Confession: Blake was one of my favorites way back in that freshman-year British lit survey.)
