Friday Finds for Writers

For the weekend: some writing-related reflections, news, and resources to enjoy.

  • First, a lovely post from Armand Inezian, on the general theme of “Ask not what you can do for your own sales, but how you can help the sales of others.”
  • Next: “How to Be a Contemporary Writer,” by Roxane Gay.
  • Reminders re: cliches to avoid (and a chance to win a free issue of Writer’s Digest).
  • Act fast (as in, today) to win a free Mediabistro course (or at least, a course discount).
  • An extensive list of (mainly free) readings and other literary events taking place this academic year on the campuses of The City University of New York. The list is frequently updated.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday.
