Over on The Millions, Nick Ripatrazone provides “20 Reasons Why You Should Read Literary Magazines.”
After three years and six rejections, Lisa Romeo has a byline in Brevity. Read her success story here (and be sure to read the bylined essay, too).
Take a few moments with the story of Annette Gendler’s book cover, “a lesson in not accepting no for an answer.”
I’m always on the lookout for writing prompts, so I’ll be checking in on the upcoming prompt-laden Poem-A-Day (PAD) Chapbook Challenge on Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides blog. (Even if I don’t get a chapbook out of it.)
I’m also always trying to learn more about social media, so I’m grateful for “Thinking of Running a Facebook Ad? Proceed with Caution,” a post by Martha Conway on Jane Friedman’s site (check the comments, too!).
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
