Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • This week brought a new NYT “Draft” column, in which Carol Kaufmann recommends writing outside.
  • There is also sad news about the passing of Ann Crispin, who, as Brian Klems phrased it, was “an advocate of writers’ rights.”
  • Fascinating developments in the quest to identify the author of The Bondwoman’s Narrative.
  • On the Ploughshares blog: litmag submission tips from Ian Stansel.
  • I recommended it once on Twitter this week already, but if you’re looking for some good weekend reading online, check out the latest issue of Brevity.
  • And from the Poetry Foundation: a reminder of the free resources they offer to help teach poetry.
  • Have a good weekend, everyone!
