Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Loved reading all about Rachel Cantor’s first sojourn at an artists’ colony over on David Abrams’s blog. (Especially since just last week I got to meet Rachel in person at a reading for her new book.)
  • Of “The Seven Deadly Sins of Public Reading” that are listed by Allison Williams over on the Brevity blog, I’d say that Gluttony is the one that most ticks me off. You?
  • Also in warning mode: “Mistakes Writers Make When Submitting to Literary Magazines.” (Courtesy of Aerogramme Writers’ Studio and Eva Langston.)
  • Need to do some heavy-duty academic research for your work? Lacking access to a heavy-duty academic library that might help? Jacqui Shine’s article for Chronicle Vitae may be helpful.
  • Bookmarked for weekend reading, when my print copy of The New York Times Magazine arrives: Vinson Cunningham’s “How Chris Jackson is Building a Black Literary Movement.”
  • Have a great weekend, everyone!
