Friday Finds for Writers
“10 Things You Didn’t Know About How the NY Times Book Review Works,” according to Pamela Paul as distilled by Literary Hub.
A couple of audio recordings that I hope to listen to soon: a case study of an essay collection and a case study of a poetry collection, both recorded at the 2016 LWC}NYC — Literary Writers Conference and offered courtesy of the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP).
“Because the stories in Heirlooms are inspired by family stories of WWII, immigration, and assimilation, I’m often asked why I wrote the collection as fiction.” So writes my friend Rachel Hall for The Story Prize’s blog. Read on for Rachel’s thoughtful response to that question.
“Outside the tenure track this is not a career.” From observations by writer John Warner regarding contingent teaching.
And, as always, there’s a fresh batch of Jewish literary links over on the My Machberet blog.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
