Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Nice interview with Lisa Romeo in which Lisa discusses how her own experience as a low-res MFA student informs her work teaching and advising other writers in a similar program.
  • About the poetry of Brazil’s interim president, Michel Temer.
  • On “American Literature Needs Indie Presses.” Appreciated this article by Nathan Scott McNamara.
  • “After requesting a book follow up with the review. Tweet, send an email, enter it through Netgalley/Edelweiss – just remember to follow up. Publishers want to know the book is getting promoted, so show them it’s being promoted.” Just a taste of For the Sake of Reading’s useful recap of “Publicists & Bloggers: A Roundtable Chat,” from #BlogBoundCon. (Book reviewers, take note.)
  • And just a reminder that I maintain a second blog where Fridays bring a batch of Jewish literary links.
  • Have a good weekend, everyone.
