Friday Finds for Writers

Treasure ChestWriting-related resources, news, and reflections to read over the weekend.

  • The New York Times spotlights writing by veterans, and workshops and journals that are supporting it.
  • Recently, Writer Abroad attended TIPE, The Independent Publishing Event in Zurich. “Here are some of the things she learned.”
  • This is getting to be a habit. Every week, it seems, I can’t resist sharing one of Carol Tice’s posts with you. This week’s offering: “The New Freelance Writer’s Quick-and-Simple Guide to Getting Started.”
  • On a related note, check out Don Vaughan’s advice on “5 Ways to Land Freelancing Assignments.”
  • Judging by how often I’ve seen them mentioned this last week, I sense that I should be telling you something about Bookish and Vine. But neither one has grabbed my attention yet (my adoration for The Totally Hip Video Book Reviewer notwithstanding). What am I missing here?
  • Have a great weekend, all. See you back here on Monday!

    1. I looked at Bookish. I can’t get excited about it either. It just seems like Goodreads, but with major publishers pushing their books at you (hardly making it objective by any measure). It’s nice that they’re going to have some original content, but it’ll have to be outstanding to switch there from Goodreads.

        And Vine…somehow, I don’t get the appeal there, either.
