The Wednesday Web Browser for Writers

Midweek means that it’s time for me to share with you a few of this week’s online discoveries (so far!).

  • Let’s begin with an issue that is – ahem – not unfamiliar to me: the question of whether writers should discuss politics online, as raised by Tracy Hahn-Burkett for Beyond the Margins. (Oh, so complicated!)
  • On a not-unrelated note: If you haven’t yet read it, I’ve shared some views (and posed some questions) concerning “Günter Grass, My Book & Me” over on my other blog.
  • Any of you taking part in Robert Lee Brewer’s April Platform Challenge? I’ve been following along. It’s thanks to that challenge that you can now subscribe to Practicing Writing (and to the aforementioned “other blog,” My Machberet) by email. Just look to the right side of the screen for the nifty subscription boxes.
  • A few choice writing lessons from Constance Hale, on The New York Times Opinionator blog.
  • In case you haven’t heard, Fiction lost out big time at the Pulitzers this week. For those of us who don’t know much about how winners are chosen, Laura Miller provides some information.
