We begin with a non-interview, new contribution to the ever-growing discussion on reading/submission fees, this time from J.D. Stanley (thanks to The Review Review for the lead).
Interview #1: Meet Betsy Gleick, the new editorial director of Algonquin Books, via this Foreword Reviews Q&A.
Interview #2: “Sharon Oard Warner On Reading, Writing, Getting Published And UNM Summer Writers’ Conference.” (I met Sharon when I took a workshop she taught at the Iowa Summer Writing Festival a number of years ago, and then I attended the UNM Summer Writers’ Conference back in its early days as the Taos Summer Writers’ Conference.)
And the next interview: Leigh Stein “comes out of the Binders to talk books, business, and how an interesting life is worth the debt.” (Conducted by Ester Bloom for The Billfold.)
Last, but definitely not least: a new Q&A with Kelly Luce, with an emphasis on her time as a writer-in-residence at the Kerouac Project. (Remember, Kelly is also a past Practicing Writer interviewee.)
Keeping to routine: the weekly batch of writing-related resources, news, and reflections. (Heavy on the interviews this week, I’ve just realized.)
Have a good, safe weekend, everyone.
