Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Ron Charles reports on changes afoot at Electric Literature.
Readers of (and potential writers for) Brain, Child will surely appreciate Lisa Romeo’s Q&A with editor/publisher Marcelle Soviero.
Travel vicariously via Kevin Haworth’s account of a three-week residency at Grin City in Grinnell, Iowa.
Entering an MFA program anytime soon? You might want to consider veteran professor John Vanderslice’s advice for incoming students.
By now, you’ve surely heard about the passing of Maya Angelou. There’s of course been an outpouring online; I’m hoping to take some time this weekend to read through this 1990 Paris Review interview with Angelou (conducted by George Plimpton), which I found via Twitter (thanks, @HungerMtn). And I’d like to revisit my copy of Angelou’s Complete Collected Poems as well.
Have a good weekend, everyone. I’ve got an extra-busy one coming up, but I promise to get the new (June) issue of The Practicing Writer out to subscribers before it’s over.
