My only regret about this Longform podcast with Taffy Brodesser-Akner is that it took me so long to get around to listening to it. If you’re at all interested in freelancing, parenting writing, or celebrity-profile writing—or if you simply want to eavesdrop on a super-lively conversation, do yourself a favor and listen. Soon.
Since I collect (okay, hoard) writing prompts, I’m grateful for this set of postings from author and professor Daniel Nester.
“Is there anything more head-smackingly awkward than asking favors of other writers?” So begins Rebecca Makkai’s latest excellent post for the Ploughshares blog—favor-asking template included! (Somehow, I almost missed this one–thanks to Michelle Hoover for ensuring that I caught it.)
Awaiting my print copy, but the November-December issue of Poets & Writers magazine is evidently out–and there’s select content online.
Big week at the day job–we launched Ben Nadler’s beautiful novel The Sea Beach Line. The celebration continues over the weekend.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Speaking of the weekend–have a great one, folks.
