Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to read over the weekend.
Something that still (sometimes) stymies me: the who/whom divide.
On the VQR blog: Kathleen Schmidt explains “what to expect when you’re expecting to hire a book publicist.”
Jane Roper writes about “the book that didn’t break out, and the disease that did.”
Happy Short Story Month! See what Fiction Writers Review has in store.
A dispatch from the classroom: Natalie Wexler on why many students in the D.C. public schools can’t write.
I’m Boston-bound today for Grub Street’s The Muse & the Marketplace. And one of my conference co-panelists, Douglas Trevor, is featured this week over on the always-excellent Books, Personally blog. Read the Q&A.
Finally: some cautionary words about Bancroft Press, a publisher included in the current Practicing Writer. Check writer Betsy Robinson’s comment at the end of the Publishers Weekly article also mentioned in the newsletter.
Happy weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday.
