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.
