For the weekend: some writing-related reflections, news, and resources to enjoy.
Longtime readers know how much I admire author and teacher Sands Hall. On her way to teach at the Iowa Summer Writing Festival the other day, Sands noticed something special happening at the Cedar Rapids airport. And she wrote about it, in her own gorgeous way.
Next up: a beautiful essay by Lila Azam Zanganeh on Dmitri Nabokov, “his father’s best translator.”

You don’t need to be an AP staffer to pick up a tip or two from these “Social Media Guidelines for AP Employees.” (I find the “Retweeting” section especially worth thinking about.)
Finally, I’m sad to share the news that The Writer, where I’ve had the privilege of serving as a contributing editor, will be going on hiatus after the October 2012 issue. I’ll have more to say about this another time.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday.
