Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • D.G. Myers compiles a list of “five books of cancer.”
  • On the Ploughshares blog, Tasha Golden explains why “do what you love” is especially bad advice for writers. (h/t The Review Review)
  • On the Bookslut blog: “We are starting a new book award, the Daphnes, that will celebrate the best books of 50 years ago.”
  • Follow along the road of a literary-magazine internship by checking in with The Missouri Review‘s Michael Nye’s account of what his class of interns has been doing so far this semester.
  • ICYMI: U.S. postal rates went up again this week. One first-class stamp now costs $.49. These announcements always make me glad that I stock up on “Forever” stamps.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.
