Friday Finds for Writers
Insights gleaned from judging a writing contest, courtesy of Annette Gendler.
For those of us who “work remotely”–a thoughtful essay by Michael Erard.
A beautiful essay “on what a dying language leaves behind,” by Rachel Hall.
Also very much worth your time: the same Rachel Hall talks about her forthcoming collection of linked stories, Heirlooms, on WXXI. Among topics included: writing fiction about family, the “gestation” of the project from first story to final book, characteristics of linked collections, and more.
Over on the Ploughshares blog, there’s a compelling post on academic jobs by poet and professor Emilia Phillips.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
