Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Congratulations to Leslie Pietrzyk, latest winner of the Drue Heinz Literature Prize for a manuscript of short stories. (Ron Charles reports.)
  • I see lots of people talking online about Michelle Nijhuis’s “Freelancing Sucks. Long Live Freelancing.” And with good reason.
  • Editor David Lynn introduces a redesign (and other changes) for KENYON review.
  • David Abrams is shuttering his amazing blog, The Quivering Pen. (Thanks for the memories, David!)
  • John Vanderslice gives some background on his virtual book tour. (He hired a company to help him, but if you want to see an example of a self-arranged virtual book tour, click here.)
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.
