In keeping with my interest in and appreciation for “writing on writing,” I point you to Daniel Bosch’s poem “Call for Submission” on the NewPages blog.
An analysis of President Obama’s recent book purchases.
A video visit with fiction writer George Saunders, on the campus of Syracuse University, where he teaches.
Some interesting career-oriented items crossed my screen this week. First, this New York Times piece describes “the real humanities crisis” as the circumstances that prevent artists and writers from practicing their craft. Then, of special interest to me as a writer with a full-time, non-teaching job in a university, this Inside Higher Ed column takes a closer look at “alt-ac” careers.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
