Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • In case any of us might need to be reminded, David Ebenbach explains that “being an artist doesn’t mean you get to be a lousy person.”
  • Karen Craigo wonders, “Do contests prey on the vulnerable?”
  • Jane Friedman outlines “the pros and cons of using a Facebook profile but not an official page.” (Side note: If I were starting my Facebook life anew, I’d probably stick with the Facebook profile and not launch an official page. But my official page, where I post only writing-and-publishing info, is several years old; for now, I’m still sticking with it, and I hope that you’ll “like” it, if you haven’t already.)
  • From Christi Craig: “50 Author Interviews at Your Fingertips.”
  • And right on schedule: the current (April) edition of The Practicing Writer newsletter (special National Poetry Month edition) is available.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.
