Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • There’s lots of press these days about Ayana Mathis, but this Salon interview, which follows her “long path to sudden fame,” is, I think, one that will especially interest Mathis’s fellow writers.
  • Samples of query letters to literary agents that worked, courtesy of GalleyCat.
  • I haven’t read it yet, but this week the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) has released its latest report on the academic job market.
  • Warning: Kelli Agodon’s dispatch from a writing retreat may make you jealous!
  • I don’t know how he does it, but David Abrams always presents the most interesting posts about upcoming books to look forward to in his “Front Porch Books” features. The December 2012 edition is no exception. (Hint: Reviewers, you’re likely to find at least title or two of interest here.)
  • Have a great weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday!

      Another wonderful week’s wrap up Erika. Loved Keli Agadon’s piece: “Soon I am reminded that writing is not a luxury, but a necessity.” What a little gem that line is. And of course David’s “Front Porch Books” never fails to deliver. Always one or two make it to the TBR list.
