Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Lovely post by Lisa Romeo on the shift from—and connections between—attending an MFA graduation as a student and as a faculty mentor.
  • Intriguing assortment of “Writing Rules and How to Break Them,” aka “The Center for Fiction’s Guide to Rebellion,” featuring Charles Baxter, Alexander Chee, Dawn Raffel, and others.
  • Thoughtful reflections after BookExpo America (BEA) from Foreword Reviews Executive Editor Howard Lovy.
  • I’m kind of pleased with the #ShortStoryMonth post I wrote for the Fig Tree Books blog this week. (Though it would be great to see some more comments! Hint, hint!)
  • And Jessica Piazza has begun posting the April updates and tallies from all of the Poetry Has Value bloggers (yours truly included).
  • Have a great weekend!
