The Wednesday Web Browser for Writers

Some fun offerings for you this midweek morning, my friends:

  • Are you ready to freelance? Take this quiz to find out.
  • Nina Badzin offers some excellent tips for new (and not-so-new) Twitter-users.
  • Meet the slate of 2011 Best American series guest editors.
  • Long Island University’s Brooklyn campus is home to a new M.F.A. program in Writing and Producing for Television.
  • I found this interview with translator Krishna Winston particularly interesting because one of the epigraphs at the start of my story collection is a two-line snippet from Gunter Grass’s Crabwalk (trans. Winston). (via ALTA_USA)
  • And speaking of my story collection…As my virtual book tour starts to wind down, I’ve been interviewed (and Quiet Americans has been reviewed) on the First Line blog, and I’ve guest-posted with thoughts on what makes Jewish literature Jewish on Swimming in the Trees.
