Very interesting craft-essay-type piece by Kevin Pickard, “Should Fiction Be Timeless? Pop Culture References in Contemporary Novels.” (Electric Lit)
Making the rounds this week: Jeannine Hall Gailey’s “The Amazing Disappearing Woman Writer” essay on The Rumpus. (One piece of information here that caught my interest: Gailey is working on a book, PR for Poets, for Two Sylvias Press.)
And on a related note: In “10 Over 75,” Bethanne Patrick reminds us of some “old and wise” authors whose work we’d do well to keep atop our tbr lists. (Literary Hub)
On the other end of the age spectrum: Jane Friedman offers excellent “writing advice for children and teens.”
And over on Book Riot, Claire Handscombe offers “99 Ways to Spread the Word About a Book You Love.”
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Happy weekend, everyone.
