Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
A lovely video profile of “Jhumpa Lahiri at Work” emphasizes the essential mystery of the writing process. (h/t @KNguyenWrites & @SaraLippmann–it was by “eavesdropping” on their Twitter convo that I ran across this video.)
Jamaal May offers advice on shaping a poetry collection.
Speaking of poetry–if you missed my mentions elsewhere of Esther Cohen’s essay about what happened when she responded to an atypical Craigslist ad, you’ll find the piece here.
This interview on HTMLGIANT made me want to read Elissa Washuta’s memoir (it’s coming from Red Hen Press in 2014) and provided further food for thought on memoir more generally.
And because we can all use this advice from time to time: “Four Simple Ways to Improve Your Day.”
Happy weekend, everyone!
