Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Another great one left us this week: William Trevor passed away at the age of 88. This New Yorker post recalls him (and offers links to the Trevor treasures in the site’s archive).
  • Here’s something I need to spend some more time delving into: Jane Friedman’s compilation of marketing and publishing checklists for writers.
  • November is almost over, and despite my best intentions, I haven’t kept up with the daily “Poem-A-Day” challenge prompts over on the Poetic Asides blog. But that doesn’t mean I can’t return to them and get some poems drafted. Maybe even over this holiday weekend.
  • Starting to feel overwhelmed by all of those year-end “best of” book lists? Over on the Largehearted Boy site, you’ll once again find a helpful, always-updating aggregation.
  • And don’t forget that I maintain another blog, focused on matters of (primarily) Jewish literary interest. Check in there every so often, too, if you’re so inclined.
  • Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

    1. Thank you for providing links to many of Trevor’s stories. I named him the world’s greatest living fiction writer after discovering “The Telephone Game” and binge-reading everything else I could get my hands on. A great voice contnues to teach writers the art of fiction. All we have to do is keep reading his brilliant work. I have never forgotten his note that what is left out is as important as what is put in. Thanks for this, Erika.
