Friday Finds for Writers

Treasure Chest
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend. (Actually, since we’ll be on a bit of a blog break until 2017, you can enjoy these for the rest of the year!)

  • For quite some time, Robert Lee Brewer has been collecting “the best tips for poets from other poets. Everyone has some truth they cling to, and there’s a good chance you’ll find inspiration from the following 20 poets!” He’s right.
  • Dan Wickett is looking forward to a lot of books slated for publication in 2017.
  • And since it seems increasingly unlikely that I’ll meet my “Goodreads Challenge” goal for the year, I found some comfort in Bruna Dantas Lobato’s post “On Reading Less,” for the Ploughshares blog.
  • From Carol Tice/ a collection of “our all-time most useful posts for brand-new freelance writers.”
  • And updates on a couple of Jewish lit awards, a new Hanukkah poem, and more over on My Machberet.
  • Everyone, enjoy the weekend and the entire holiday season. See you back here in 2017!
