Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Yes, some of us are still catching up on the AWP recaps! Me, for instance. Really appreciated this post from Leah Falk/MFA Day Job, including “something like a top five list from the conference for writers with day jobs or searching for day jobs.”
  • Over on the Poetry Has Value site, Jessica Piazza shares her April stats, including money spent/money earned.
  • Since I sometimes become a little tired of parent-writers complaining about how difficult it is to write and parent, I found this post on the Writer Abroad site—“5 Reasons Becoming a Parent Makes You a Better Writer”—to be a refreshing find.
  • Still trying to get the hang of hashtags? might be able to help you out. (via @JaneFriedman)
  • And speaking of hashtags: I’ll leave you with a Twitter comment that may make you re-think the use of “#amwriting”. It made me chuckle, at any rate.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.

      In Leah Falk’s post I love that she writes “Be gentle with yourself during this time.”
