Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Anne Enright writes about “How the World Reads Irish Writers” (h/t @KatyaTaylor).
  • Occasioned by Black History Month, but worth reading anytime: Kevin Young on Langston Hughes’s The Weary Blues.
  • Not exactly cheery news from Columbia Journalism Review: “New Survey Reveals Everything You Think About Freelancing Is True.”
  • Also not the most uplifting take: “The Future of the University Quarterly,” on the Inside Higher Ed site.
  • On the other hand, this week brought a celebration of the work of Patrick Modiano here in New York. Video here.
  • Happy weekend!
