Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • From the NPR Social Media Desk: “What We Can Learn from the Kardashians.” (Did I really just write that?)
  • Looking for some prompts? Check out these 500 samples “for narrative and personal writing” from the New York Times Learning Network. (Thanks to Lisa Romeo for this find.)
  • Much to my chagrin, I missed the AP’s holiday-themed Style Chat earlier this week. Thankfully, Poynter had me covered.
  • Many congratulations to the latest group of poets to have won fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.
  • I’m consistently impressed by (and, truth be told, a little envious of) my writer friends who seem to be as gifted/talented in other artistic areas as they are in writing. Latest example/reminder: Deonne Kahler, photographer.
  • Happy weekend!

      So happy when people respond so positively to these links!

    4. I’m looking forward to reading more on each of your links above, but I have to say, the 500 writing prompts is such a valuable resource! I’ll be sharing it with my blog readers this week and I’ll make sure to mention Practicing Writers and your newsletter as well. Thanks for always sending out such helpful information!
