Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • It’s always a treat to receive Diane Lockward’s poetry newsletter. If you’re not a subscriber, I highly recommend that you become one! Here’s the latest (April) issue.
  • Not surprisingly, some of the more astute commentaries on Amazon’s acquisition of Goodreads have come from Steve Almond and Porter Anderson.
  • Speaking of Amazon: Do you think it should change its policy on Kindle book returns? I do, which is why I’ve signed the petition that Galleycat brought to my attention this week.
  • Acronyms decoded: pay terms for freelancers.
  • Congratulations to Kelly James-Enger on the launch of Improvise Press and the new edition of Six-Figure Freelancing (and special thanks to Kelly for the complimentary digital review copy that she offered me–I’m gobbling it up!).
  • Have a great weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday!
