Friday Finds for Writers
Useful Brevity blog post on writing residencies by Allison K. Williams. Nice mix of personal account and resource information.
Revision tips on the Story Prize blog, from novelist and short-story writer Karen E. Bender.
On my weekend viewing agenda: “Book TV’s tour of the New York Times Book Review included an interview with the section’s editor, Pamela Paul, and a look at the department’s weekly ‘headlines’ meeting, where the upcoming edition of the Book Review is discussed.”
Speaking of the NYTBR: Last week’s “Bookends” page, with contributions from Mohsin Hamid and James Parker, addressed a topic in which I am invested both as a reader and as a writer: whether “more is necessarily more” when it comes to page count.
And some literary humor on BuzzFeed, from Shannon Reed, who imagines “If Jane Austen Got Feedback From Some Guy In A Writing Workshop.” (popular online, but I first saw it thanks to Nick Kocz)
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
