Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • 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.
  • Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
