Friday Finds for Writers

The weekly collection of writing-related resources, news, and reflections to read over the weekend.

  • I was very sorry to learn of the passing of Isaiah Sheffer, whose voice has welcomed me into so many memorable “Selected Shorts” broadcasts.
  • Superb submission advice from Michelle Seaton.
  • Nina Badzin is celebrating her blog’s second birthday with a slew of prizes. (The blog is instructive and fun, and I love visiting/reading, so I recommend that you go over there even if you aren’t interested in the books, barres, or blogging consultation that Nina is offering.)
  • You’ve likely heard the news: Philip Roth is done with writing! Eitan Kensky reads Roth’s declaration more closely.
  • And ICYMI: my November “First Looks” column, posted this week, previews two new fiction releases.
  • Have a great weekend, all. See you back here on Monday.
