For the weekend: some writing-related reflections, news, and resources to enjoy.
First up: An assortment of authors’ book-promotion tips. I’m most intrigued by C. Hope Clark’s endorsement of the Square Card Reader, pictured to the left. (You may have seen Square elsewhere in the news this week, too.)
Next: “Got an MFA? Teach high school,” advises Nick Ripatrazone.
The Kenyon Review interviews George Singleton, on being told to “stick to fiction” in a poetry workshop, and other literary matters.
Sam Tanenhaus, who edits The New York Times Book Review, describes a typical workday and exemplary criticism.
Roxane Gay presents writers of color.
And in case you’ve missed the mentions elsewhere: I’m coming to Boston! And if this seminar on writing conferences, contests, and residencies appeals to you, please join us!
Have a great weekend. See you back here on Monday.
