Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Laura van den Berg on “organizing principles” in short-story collections. (h/t NewPages blog)
  • Quite a glimpse into the publishing business, courtesy of Daniel Menaker’s new book.
  • Ron Charles offers a nice recap of National Book Awards ceremony highlights.
  • My friends at J Journal: New Writing on Justice have unveiled a spiffy new website. Go take a look. (I’ve been known to send gift subscriptions more than once. This could be a great holiday gift, especially–but not only–for anyone who works in the law and/or law enforcement.)
  • And for your weekend listening pleasure: an interview with the wonderful William Trevor. (h/t @paul_mc_veigh)
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.

    1. As somebody as who struggled mightily in figuring out arrangements for potential story collections (and had fun with the process), I really enjoyed the van den Berg essay. Thanks.
