Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Via Robert Lee Brewer: “4 Ways to Take Criticism Like a Pro,” by Tanaz Bhathena.
  • From Karen Craigo: another thought-provoking post, this time on the complexities of editing one literary journal while sending work out to others.
  • Quite a week for Rebecca Makkai, including the release of the paperback edition of her story collection Music for Wartime, and the publication of this stunning piece on The New Yorker‘s website.
  • I don’t think I’m the only one to identify with more than one element in Julie Vick’s “The Writer’s Index” (published on the Brevity blog).
  • And a quick follow-up to Wednesday’s post: You can now find “The Story of Ruth, in Three Poems,” on Tablet.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.
