Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Over on the Brevity nonfiction blog, Stephanie G’Schwind, editor of Man in the Moon: Essays on Fathers & Fatherhood, discusses the challenges and creativity involved in assembling a coherent anthology.
  • Rebecca Makkai’s essay on “Things I Haven’t Read” has received a lot of attention–including a response essay from David Ebenbach.
  • Wonderful essay by Tim Kreider on “Controlling the Narrative.”
  • Randy Susan Meyers writes about “Grumbling in Public, Complaining About Your Job, and Other No-No’s for Writers.”
  • Remember that I recently published a “Success Story”? Well, so has Ann Goldberg. And I really like her account of how she moved “from giving free advice to leading a successful workshop.”
  • Happy weekend, everyone, and a particularly Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and dad-like nurturers out there.
