Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • We can’t all go to the Sirenland Writers Conference in Positano, Italy. But we can all enjoy a report from one of this year’s participants, Alison Strack, on Lisa Romeo’s blog.
  • John Vanderslice extends the discussion of economic realities for creative writers.
  • Nuts-and-bolts suggestions from Carol Tice on ways to find out if a magazine pays for freelance articles.
  • Julie Schumacher describes a set of circumstances that others among us have faced as creative-writing teachers: dealing with the uncertainties surrounding whether a student might be dangerous.
  • Another (though very different) tale from the writing classroom: Robert Anthony Siegel writes about the experience of having his mother as his workshop student.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone!
