Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Daniel Mendelsohn and Anna Holmes take up the question, “When It Comes to Fiction on National Tragedy, How Soon Is Too Soon?” – a question, that, as you may recall, hits close to home.
  • Insights from Dorothy Allison, Cathy Day, and Christi Craig on “Writing About Place.”
  • Writers writing about money (or the lack thereof).
  • An inspiring set of “Summer-Inspired Writing Prompts” from Anca Szilagyi, on the Ploughshares blog.
  • Since I had the chance to meet novelist Robin Black this week, today seems to be an appropriate time to share her recent essay about the evolution of her writerly identity.
  • Have a good weekend, everyone.
