Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Backgrounds of the book reviewers–terrific interviews with Katherine A. Powers & Ron Charles.
  • What made the applications of the two new Kenyon Review Fellows stand out for selection?
  • The Best Translated Book Award Fiction Longlist was released this week. I’m happy to see Dalya Bilu’s translation of Orly Castel-Bloom’s Textile appear there.
  • I’ve seen several people sharing Spencer Madsen’s “I Made the Mistake of Starting a Small Press and So Can You” this week, and after reading this unofficial guide, I can understand why.
  • Poets & Writers is working on “a database of reading venues, which will help writers identify places where they can arrange readings and help the public to locate literary events.” Add your suggestion(s) here.
  • Have a wonderful weekend.
